Duckhorn Merlot is widely considered the benchmark of Merlot in California because of its consistent quality and rich, approachable character. Dan Duckhorn’s ardor for the classic Bordeaux varietal traces back to a transformative journey to Bordeaux. Upon his return in 1978, he planted Merlot, vowing to grow it as beautifully in Napa Valley and improve its reputation in the New World.

The Napa Valley Merlot blends some of the winery’s most iconic vineyards in Oak Knoll, Carneros, Calistoga, Howell Mountain, and Atlas Peak, reflecting the diversity of Napa’s appellations.

The 2021 growing season saw small yields with intense concentration, and this Napa Valley Merlot incorporates Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, resulting in a seductively smooth yet powerful wine.

Tasting Panel Notes, “The 2021 release of the Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot opens with concentrated notes of fresh violets, blackberries, baking spices, the forest floor after a rainstorm, and mushrooms. On the palate, the wine has a silky texture and flavors of black cherries, plums, and dark chocolate with chili pepper spice. This wine coats the mouth with complex flavors that flow into a persistent yet smooth finish.” WCC 95 POINTS
