Tasting Notes

90 points from Wine Enthusiast: "For such a large production wine, this Merlot has a lot going for it. It’s full-bodied and rich in black currant, cherry, chocolate, violet, licorice and smoky oak flavors, with dense, intricate tannins. Probably best now and through 2009, before it drops its fresh fruit." (5/1/2008) A merlot blend combining Duckhorn Estate fruit with berries from independent growers throughout Napa Valley, the 2005 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot is a reflection of the Valley itself. Rewarding while young, the wine is balanced and complex with aromas of raspberry, redcurrant, blueberry and cherry cola, accented by notes of spice. Ripe black fruits abound on the palate, followed by toast and a hint of herb.
