2009 Duckhorn Three Palms Vineyard Merlot

Medium body. Not as structured, firm as I expected. Soft and approachable. A pleasant wine.

Nice dark cherry skin color. Aromas of dark cherry, cranberry and mossy floor. Yum! Loads of red fruit and baking spices that fade away quickly,making you want another sip. — 6 days ago

Nose is very shy. Cassis and blueberries meld onto a mineral-driven palate. Lacking the richness, density and sweetness we have come to expect. A good expression of the varietal from a relatively poor vintage. — 18 days ago

Robert Keenan Winery

Napa Valley Merlot 2012

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. — 2 days ago

Dark red color, dark cherry skin rim. Aromas of cranberry, cloves and cinnamon. Punch of dark fruit and baking spices, some mossy/wet forest floor on the finish. Needs more time. — 6 days ago

Had the 2011 with pizza tonight. Loved the strong notes of plum/prune. The longer it airs, the better it gets. — a day ago

It’s #MerlotThursday! Here's a nice one from Napa Valley.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish/brick rim.

Fruity nose with blueberries, black plums, blackberries, light vegetables, black cherries, currants, oak, light vanilla, licorice, cedar, spices, earth, leather, chocolates, mocha, coffee, black pepper and pencil lead.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with plums, cherries, black currants, cedar, earth, vanilla, leather, chocolates, vegetables, vinaigrette, licorice, spices, tobacco, diet cola, light bell pepper, herbs and black pepper.

Long finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Napa Merlot is still drinking nicely, but it's on the way out.
Showing great complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Good by itself and good with food. Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.

Was better a year ago. Showing much more vegetables than last year, both on the nose and palate.

Very easy drinking, so watch out ...😃

I paired it with a few different soft and hard cheeses, but the Brie cheese really went well with all those green vegetables.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Not feeling this, initially. Then...

Upping my score cos I took another look on day 2. It gained a little more weight, and showed a little more urgency on the palate. Nice mature raspberries and coffee notes, and a sweet finish.

Not a very strong nose, but some dark fruits and baking spices. Medium body, balanced acids and tannins that give a lingering spiciness while being smooth. — 3 days ago
