Winemaker Notes

From its layered aromas of ripe red cherry, mascarpone, earth and almonds to its supple texture and lingering finish, this is a complex and compelling Merlot. As the wine evolves in the glass, intense flavors of licorice, dark cherry, blackberry, violets and sage emerge with age-worthy tannins adding depth and focus to a long, satisfying finish

Blend: 83% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast
While this wine has strong tannins, it's the most approachable of Duckhorn's six new 2010 Merlots, with a softness that makes it delicious now. The flavors are remarkably complex, ranging from ripe cherry, blackberry and blueberry to chocolate, violet, mineral, baking spice and sweet new oak. Fantastic to drink now, it will develop for at least six years.

Duckhorn Vineyards, California
Duckhorn Vineyards Winery Video

Founded in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting Bordeaux varietals from the Napa Valley for over 30 years. This winemaking tradition has grown to include seven estate vineyards, located throughout the various microclimates of the Napa Valley. Focused on quality and consistency, these estate vineyards are an essential element in making wines of distinction.

One of the first wineries to pioneer Merlot as a premium varietal, Duckhorn Vineyards now makes several elegant Merlot and distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings to showcase the characteristics of its vineyard sites. In addition, the winery is known for its acclaimed Sauvignon Blanc. Beginning with the 2006 vintage, Duckhorn Vineyards unveiled The Discussion, a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend that represents the pinnacle of Duckhorn's portfolio.

One of Napa Valley's most historic sub-appellations, Yountville spreads through some of the valley's ideal cooler sites and enjoys success with a handful of different and significant grape varieties.

Syrah competes strongly with Cabernet Sauvignon here for optimal vineyard real estate followed by Pinot noir, Pinot blanc and Sauvignon blanc.

This sub-AVA of Napa Valley is rich in the history that makes Napa Valley what it is today, and not just for red wines. Moët & Chandon entered the California winemaking business via Yountville in 1973 with the establishment Domaine Chandon. Their goal has always been to produce top quality méthode champenoise sparkling wines.

Christian Moueix, originally responsible for managing Chateau Petrus and La Fleur-Petrus in Pomerol, arrived in Yountville in the early 1980s. He formed a partnership with Rohin Lail and Marcia Smith, inheritors of Napanook vineyard from their father John Daniel of Inglenook in Rutherford. In 1995 Moueix became sole owner of Napanook and chose the name Dominus, which today produces some of Napa’s highest scoring, age-worthy Bordeaux Blends.
