After falling in love with Merlot during a visit to Bordeaux, Dan Duckhorn started producing Duckhorn Vineyards Merlot in 1978. Highlighting Estate vineyards and top independent growers, our Napa Valley Merlot reflects the rich diversity of the valley’s many appellations. To add complexity, the final wine has been blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and is notable for its depth, structure, and signature flavors of black cherry, plum, and spice.

**** 1/2

deep, dark, and intense black cherry. although the nose offers an earthy spice, the spice finishes quite softly on the tongue.
