Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot 2021
|California, Napa Valley
This lighter-tasting, vibrant style of Merlot is refreshing to sip. Fresh raspberries and red cherries waft up from the glass before vivid, red fruit flavors hit the palate, freshened by good fruit acidity and light tannins.
A classic Napa Valley Merlot, produced since 1978, Duckhorn's 2020 Merlot offers up scents of black cherries, thyme and mocha. It's medium to full-bodied but lacks a bit of richness on the mid-palate, then turns slightly coarse and rustic on the finish. Drink it young.
