Duckhorn 2011 Merlot, Napa Valley
Not just an entrepreneur but a true visionary, Dan Duckhorn was the first Napa winemaker to see the potential for Merlot as not just something to blend with Cabernet but as the primary grape in a great Napa Valley wine. He founded his winery on that premise and the rest is history. No other Merlot from California has achieved the success, the accolades or the following that Duckhorn enjoys. The wines are always highly allocated and snapped up by legions of loving admirers. This 2011 hasn't been rated yet but Wine Advocate scored the 2010 90 points saying "The dark ruby/plum-tinged 2010 Merlot Carneros reveals a smokier, earthier nose displaying hints of Chinese black tea, vanilla, roasted coffee beans, sweet cherry and plum-like fruit, and a plush, lush finish. It should drink well for a decade."

    Comments about Duckhorn 2011 Merlot, Napa Valley:

    Tried this when I had dinner at Ramsey's steakhouse in the Paris casino in Las Vegas and loved it.

    Not usually a merlot fan, but this one may change my thinking.

      Comments about Duckhorn 2011 Merlot, Napa Valley:

      Duckhorn has become synonymous with great Napa Merlot, and this vintage is no different. It has lush black cherry and cassis throughout with lovely hints of oak, sweet baking spaces and hints of rose petal. It's leans towards the delicate side, but still finishes with those nice firm tannins and some milk chocolate.
