2014 DUCKHORN “NAPA VALLEY” MERLOT
How do you define Iconic? Merriam Webster defines it as “widely known and acknowledged especially for distinctive excellence.” Over the last 40 years, Duckhorn has become an inspirational icon for mastering Bordeaux varietals, and particularly Merlot in Napa Valley. I can think of no other wine brand that defines iconic for a particular varietal than Duckhorn does for Merlot. It conquers your senses with disarmingly attractive crushed blackberry, dark chocolate, espresso and liquid floral. Our panel was literally floored over the quality, and we weren’t the only ones whose noses perked up when thinking about Duckhorns 2014’s… Their 2014 Three Palms Merlot just earned Duckhorn’s highest score ever in the Wine Spectator for this vintage.
Arising from one of Napa Valley’s best vintages, the 2014 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot thrives after developing for 16 months in oak barrels and one year in the bottle before release. Marked by a satin texture, the 2014 Merlot embodies the perfect combination of opulence and elegance, and after a grueling tasting with 75 wines, this was the bright star at the end of the race. If you love Merlot, or better yet, if you don’t like Merlot, try a case of this and you’ll be overjoyed that you did…
