The Discussion was blended using the very best barrels of wine from the finest blocks of Duckhorn's estate vineyards. While this wine is abundantly rich and flavorful, it is defined by its refinement and complexity. Aromas of mulberry, plum, leather, cassis and cocoa offer a beautiful prelude to a rich, velvety mouthfeel with fine-grained tannins. These tannins provide lovely structure, and underscore the layered sophistication of the blackberry, cherry, rose petal and red currant flavors. Elegantly integrated oak adds hints of clove, pencil shaving and roasted chestnuts, while providing length and dimension.
Blend: 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot
"Even at more than four years of age, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot remains huge in primary cherry, blackberry, cassis and chocolate flavors. The tough, astringent tannins make it essentially undrinkable now. Yet its underling wholesomeness and balance guarantee development through 2021, and possibly longer."
