2016 DUCKHORN “THREE PALMS VINEYARD” MERLOT
Duckhorn’s new 2016 Three Palms Merlot literally gave me chills of excitement when I tasted it, which continued all the way through the penetrating, lengthy finish. The 2016 has even greater intensity and opulence than the 2014 which ranked as the #1 Wine in the World on the 2017 Wine Spectator Top 100 list, making it one of only two California Merlots ever to earn the coveted spot. The powerfully seductive fruit and finely grained tannins are woven throughout and highlight that it’s irresistible now, but it has all the characteristics it needs to cellar for two decades. 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 single varietal than Duckhorn does for Merlot…
Perfectly embodying new world intensity along with traditional backbone, the 2016 Three Palms absolutely conquers your senses with intense crushed black-raspberry, graphite, cocoa dusted blackberries and potpourri. The 2016 is remarkably poised with a dominant presence on the palate that expands throughout the finish. I strongly recommend securing a case of this celebrated California Merlot.
