Duckhorn 2012 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. The 2012 growing season offered near-perfect growing conditions. A blend of 88% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec aged 16 months in 25% new French oak barrels. It shows exceptional structure and depth with velvety tannins and alluring fruit. Wine Spectator scored this 90 points saying "Focused and deeply structured, with bold blackberry and cedar aromas and flavors, accented with a plush texture and notes of cherry, tobacco and mineral. Drink now through 2022." And Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 91 points saying "Benefiting from a larger percentage of Three Palms Vineyard fruit than ever before, this majority Merlot also holds Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The result is a density of rich, soft and spicy red fruit supported by structured tannins. This is ready for the table and a wide range of pairings."
