Astringently tannic, as Duckhorn's new red wines tend to be, but very rich, very ripe, and sweet enough in fruit and oak to drink now with a nice steak. Floods the mouth with blackberries, cassic, chocolate, violets, mushu plum sauce, licorice and cedar.
Duckhorn grabs the brass ring again with this ripe and luscious effort whose classic sweet cherry aromas are laced with complex notes of cassis and creamy oak. On the palate, the wine is silky, supple and balanced and is nicely packed with bright red cherry fruit. Full in body but never heavy in any regard and noticeably tannic without being hard, this one is drinkable now yet can be cellared for three to five years.
Good dark red. Currant, plum, mocha and chocolatey oak on the nose, with hints of menthol and exotic flowers. Supple currant and menthol flavors offer a nice sugar/acid balance but also betray a slightly roasted character. A moderately dense merlot that finishes a tad green. (ST)
Elegant and rather juicy, with currant and cola aromas and modest cherry and cedar-herb flavors. (TF)
