About Duckhorn 2016 Merlot, Three Palms, Napa Valley

Probably the most celebrated and collectible 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. In fact the 2014 was the Wine Spectator #1 Wine of the Year. 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. This 2016 is 93% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec aged 18 months in 100% French Oak, 75% new.


Wine Spectator scored this 93 points saying "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."
