Duckhorn Three Palms Vineyard Merlot 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Calistoga|
Blended with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec, this vintage is superb and exuberant in flavors of chocolate-covered plum, baking spice and dried herb. Structured, robust and mineral-driven, it is powerful yet balanced. Enjoy 2026-2036.
Vibrant acidity supports polished flavors of plum tart, dried cherry and dark olive, backed by crisp tannins. Dark chocolate notes merge with herbal accents on the liltingly smoky finish. Drink now through 2024. 4,500 cases made.
The 2014 Merlot Three Palms is one sexy little Merlot that does everything right. Blackcurrants, black cherries, loads of underbrush and forest floor, and exotic spice notes all emerge from the glass. This full-bodied, plump, sexy beauty has enough mid-palate depth and tannin structure to keep for 10-15 years.
