Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
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.
With dark fruit at its core, this wine offers thick, concentrated power alongside accents of sage and clove. The fruit is black cherry and plum, rich enough to be jammy, with plenty of support from toasted oak and baking spice nuances.
Dried cherry and red berry flavors show lots of hot stone notes, with accents of dried green herbs on the moderately tannic finish. Drink now. 65,000 cases made.
