The cooler 2011 vintage yielded an aromatic Merlot with vibrant layers of Rainier cherry and spiced plum, as well as notes of licorice, tobacco leaf, cardamom and thyme. Hints of cedar and leather add dimension to this wine's smooth, velvety texture.

One of the Napa Valley's most classic wines! The 2011 Duckhorn is so well built an finely tuned. Shows red currants, dust and sweet oak; soft tannins; delivers well on the palate and in the finish. Made from 83% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Petit Verdot. 2.5% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc]
