Duckhorn Three Palms Vineyard Merlot 2013
Once again, this legendary vineyard has proven that it can produce remarkable Cabernet Sauvignons, alongside its famed Merlots. The aromas open up with layers of cassis, leather and fig compote, as well as hints of rose petal and wet stone. On the palate, a streak of almost architectural acidity and firm tannins frame flavors of blueberry pie and bittersweet chocolate, while carrying the wine to an elegant, focused finish.
