COMMENTARY: The 2017 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot brings the Right Bank to our part of the world and gives wine lovers a beautiful wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine accurately and lovingly puts Merlot on a pedestal. Its aromas and flavors of boysenberries and subtle oaky notes frame the wine perfectly. Enjoy it with a properly-seasoned Porchetta. (Tasted: July 19, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

A nicely crafted 2017 red with berries, plums and hints of dark chocolate on the nose and palate. Medium body, creamy tannins and a savory finish. Pretty fruit at the end. Drink or hold.

Winemaker Notes

A classic expression of Napa Valley Merlot, this wine offers alluring aromas of lush cherry, raspberry, cocoa and freshly baked pie crust. The cherry and raspberry notes are echoed on the silky palate, where fine-grained tannins and flavors of ripe plum, blueberry, licorice and subtle baking spice draw the wine to a long, elegant finish.
