Winemaker Notes

As compelling as it is complex, this beautiful wine reveals aromas of mahogany, blueberry, star anise, vanilla bean, black currant and rose petal. On the palate, savory hints of sage and graphite add dimension to the rich fruit layers, with supple, rounded tannins contributing to the wine’s elegant structure and impressive length.

Blend: 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
The 2012 Duckhorn Vineyards The Discussion—produced from Bordeaux grape varieties—is more than a vinous beverage. This wine offers so many nuances—bold black fruits, bright red fruits, sweet oak, savory spices, sweet spices, earth, slate, and more—that it invites wine lovers to gather around and chat about the artistry of its production. Pair with a selection of fine cheeses, enjoy the moment, and always remember that the discussion never stops. (Tasted: March 6, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

James Suckling
Plenty of fruit yet this remains subtle and tight. Hints of vanilla. Medium body, medium tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink in 2018.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Tight, rich and layered, centered on a core of dusty blackberry, licorice, dried herb and savory underbrush. Complex, with narrow, well-balanced flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028.”

Video of winery

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.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
