International Wine Report ReviewRated 91The 2013 Duckhorn 'Napa Valley' Merlot is another great effort from this estate. This wine begins with aromatics of black plum, black olive and black cherry with hints of eucalyptus. There are flavors of black cherry, roasted figs, coffee grounds and milk chocolate. This is delicious and open style Merlot that improves considerably with a one hour decant. There is nice richness with a seamless mouthfeel. (Best 2016-2026)Wine Tasting NotesThe Napa Valley Merlot is a complex blend of several individual vineyard lots, incorporating fruit from our estate vineyards and from top independent growers throughout the Napa Valley. The final wine is a rich and cohesive expression of the entire Napa Valley, reflecting the varied microclimates and soils of this unique appellation. This gorgeous wine displays intense aromas of ripe cherry, followed by more nuanced elements of cedar, sweet spices, orange peel and cigar box. On the palate, layers of black raspberry and spiced plum mingle with more savory notes of nutmeg and pencil lead. With firm, well-integrated tannins that extend the finish, this beautifully structured Merlot also promises great ageability.88% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet FrancAlcohol 14.5%
