Duckhorn Three Palms Merlot 2019

Category:

Merlot from Calistoga, Napa Valley, California

Tasting Notes

The exceptional 2019 growing season produced a fascinating and elegantly full-bodied expression of Merlot at the famed Three Palms Vineyard. Luxurious aromas of black plum, boysenberry, and dark chocolate leap from the glass, followed by hints of sweet molasses and vanilla bean. On the palate, firm tannins and undercurrents of energetic acidity add brightness and poise to lush dark berry flavors, while promising a long life ahead.

James Suckling – 95 Points

I like the savory nose here, with notes of coffee, spiced plum, overturned earth and bark. Full-bodied with fine, silky tannins. Expressive, but focused, with really clean and clear dark fruit blending nicely with ground spice and grilled herbs. Totally delicious. This will age very nicely.

Pairing Notes

Pairs well with grilled marinated quail, parma ham and fig flatbread, potato leek and bacon stacks, and lamb sugo with pappardelle pasta.
