Gliding in at half the price of the winery’s top Cuvée from Red Mountain, Robert Parker alerts readers that Duckhorn’s Canvasback is a good value play, and just about as good as the Grand Passage Cuvée ($80).  Surrendering a hypnotic perfume of lucid black raspberries, liquid violets, Asian spices and black truffle, and at under forty per bottle here’s a wine with perfect weight and balance.  Hatched from 13 of the top vineyards along Washington State’s revered Red Mountain AVA, an area that’s produced a quarry of high 90’s scores, the new Canvasback is rich and full-bodied, and now with a year in the bottle the flavors are really taking flight.

Duckhorn is an inspirational reference standard for mastering Bordeaux varietals in Napa Valley, and they haven’t skipped a beat with their Washington State project.  Winemaker Brian Rudin is producing outstanding wines, and you won’t want to let this one fly away.   Here’s an opportunity to get in on the ground floor with this new project that’s destined for success.

2014 CANVASBACK (DUCKHORN) “RED MOUNTAIN” CABERNET SAUVIGNON

 

From The Wine Enthusiast, ”Coming from a warm vintage in a hot region, this wine brings light aromas of mineral and red and black fruit along with a barrel-spice top note. The black-cherry flavors are lush, full and palate coating, supported by firm tannins. It’s high on the delicious scale.” 92 Points

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, ”Not far behind the more expensive Grand Passage cuvee, the 2014 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and the balance Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Notes of black raspberries, cassis, black cherries, licorice and graphite all emerge from this perfumed, complex and elegant red that has medium to full-bodied richness and a clean, classy finish. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.” 91 Points

From Wine & Spirits, “A faint, intriguing scent of mint and violets leads in this compelling red, a wine drawn from purchased fruit as the Canvasback team waits for its own vineyards to mature. With air, it takes on a dark fruit tone of black plums and cherries, lined with cedar, limned with chalky tannins. Stuffed with good components, this needs time to knit.” 91 Points
