Duckhorn 2011 Merlot, Three Palms Vyd., Napa Valley, Magnum, 1.5L
Magnum, 1.5Liter

Probably the most famous and celebrated Merlot that Napa Valley produces, Duckhorn Three Palms Vineyard is a true testament to the quality and character that Merlot can achieves in this ideal microclimate. This 2011 is a blend of 87% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc aged in 51% New French oak barrels for 24 months. Wine Review online scored it 97 points saying "The 2011 vintage was unusually cool for Napa, which resulted in a spectacular Three Palms Merlot. Wonderfully aromatic, itís a firm, young wine, with a riveting tension between fruitiness and herbal qualities. The tannins are fine, not aggressive, and provide perfect structure and balance. It expands it the glass, with layers of herbal earthy nuances, not just fruit flavors. Indeed, itís the non-fruit elements that set this wine apart. This tightly wound wine, which stops you in your tracts now, should evolve beautifully over the next decade, so thereís no rush to pull the cork."
