Description

2021 DUCKHORN NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Tasting Notes from Master Sommelier: “The 2021 Duckhorn Napa Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a captivating nose, balancing opulent fruit and intriguing complexity. Deep black currants and Bing cherry lead the way, both sweet and vibrant. Lavender lifts the nose, then sweet vanilla adds nuance, hinting at the wine’s time spent in French oak. Earthy elements emerge with pipe tobacco and delicate fresh green herbs, leading to a touch of crushed stone minerality providing added intrigue. The palate seamlessly continues this theme, with Mountain blackberries grabbing the baton; their brambly richness is balanced by the cassis’ deeper, more structured character. Satiny tannins leave a luxurious impression, leading to mouthwatering acidity that cuts through the richness, ensuring a lively palate. The core of this wine showcases deep, sweet fruit flavors, a testament to the quality of the vintage. Yet, the saline minerality elevates this Cabernet, adding more complexity. The finish lingers long on the palate, a tribute to the wine’s structure and aging potential. This 2021 Duckhorn Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful yet elegant expression of Napa Valley. It is a wine that will undoubtedly reward both immediate enjoyment and careful cellaring.” KEVIN VOGT 95 POINTS

Winery Production Notes:
Varietal Composition: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc

Duckhorn Winery Notes: “Despite an unusually dry winter and warm spring, budbreak was delayed due to light rain in March. The overall lack of rainfall led to light clusters and small berries, which resulted in reduced yields and great concentration. Harvest began on August 5th with Semillon, and early heat generated a fast and furious first few weeks of picking. A much-needed mid-September cool-down allowed for sugars to realign with flavor development. Moderate temperatures continued throughout the rest of the season, providing additional hangtime for the grapes. Our last red grapes were harvested before the rains in late October, resulting in beautiful wines that are dense, pure and polished.”
