2009 Duckhorn Three Palms Vineyard Merlot
Medium body. Not as structured, firm as I expected. Soft and approachable. A pleasant wine.

Dark ruby red in appearance. Great nose with some greenery, dark berries and a bit of earthiness. Solid tannins (6/10) and medium plus bodied. Great acidity on the palate with some red cherries, currants and minerality. Long finish. Drink till 2026. — 15 days ago
Rated this an 89 about a year and a half ago and my rating is unchanged today. Not my choice to open and sorta relied on the person who chose it to finish it off. Mushroom funk like the last time. Muted fruit. Some earthy characteristics but never came to life. Disjointed. Uninspiring. Disappointing as I quite like Keenan wines on a whole. — 9 days ago
Family-owned and operated since 1985, from a small, 30-acre plot of grapes to the present 20 estate vineyards, Don and Rhonda Carano's success is based on their commitment to quality. Tried this about a test ago, consistent notes. Dark fruit aromas with cedar and spice notes. On the palate, Blueberry and Plum flavors, a bit jammy, with espresso and cacao tones. Medium body, soft tannins, nice balance on lingering finish. Great value! — 16 days ago
Outstanding Texas Merlot! When your wife is traveling and you can't open a bottle without her...... Helloooo Coravin! 😂
Delicious Merlot from the Texas High Plains AVA (yes Texas 🇨🇱 has an AVA!) and made by Calais Winery. Owner and Winemaker, Ben, is a mad French scientist when it comes to Texas grapes.
Notes of anise/licorice, rosewater, plum, blueberry, blackberries, and toast.
Aged 22 months in French oak barrels.

A straight up outstanding Canadian red. Bold, dark fruit notes, smooth and well balanced with that softer, more velvety mouthfeel you either love or hate in a Merlot. Prominent cherry, plum and blackberry with a hint of vanilla on the finish. Black Sage by Sumac Ridge in Summerland, BC continues to produce some of my favourite reds. This Merlot is as equally excellent as their Cab Franc. — 15 days ago
