Very much on point with respect to its variety's classic and close-to-succulent, dark cherry fruit but a well-balanced Merlot with a keen tannic spine and one that never errs to softness or loses its way to pushy ripeness, this continuous, nicely extracted version hints quietly at Cabernet in its solid, slightly tighter structure. It already shows plenty of depth and good range, yet it is bound to impress even more if set aside and given the chance to develop for another three to five years.
Duckhorn takes the soft lushness of merlot and brings along some crisp tailoring. It’s a clean wine with stamina, coasting on soft cherry flavor, darkening to blueberry length. A simple pleasure.
Solidly built, with a lively, focused core and aromas of dark berry and spice mixed with sleek flavors of cherry and licorice. Drink now through 2027. (TF)
