About Duckhorn 2015 Merlot, Three Palms, Napa Valley

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 achieve in this ideal microclimate. Named for

its three iconic palm trees, the warm, up valley vineyard features lean

soils that cause the vines to send their roots deep in search of

nutrients, producing an intense, age-worthy wine with complex fruit and

mineral layers. 2014 was the Wine Spectator #1 Wine of 2017 and this 2015 is keeping pace. 91% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5% Petit Verdot, .5% Cabernet Franc aged 18 months in 100% French Oak, 75% new. <br></span></p><p>Wine Review Online scored this a perfect 100 points saying"This stunning wine is yet another in a more than 30-year string of successes from this iconic vineyard near the top of the Napa Valley.  Situated at the warmer end of the valley, the Three Palms Vineyard defies the conventional wisdom that a cooler climate is better suited for Merlot.  The 2015 is richly layered and beautifully structured, with impressive heft that hardly compromises the elegance and sensuality of this beautiful wine.  On the palate the 2015 Three Palms Merlot exhibits ripe notes of plum, cherry and currant, and subtle notes of graphite and wood spice.  The vineyard is a treasure, and so is this wine.   This is the second time I've tasted this vintage, and I've upgraded the score."
