Ripe stingy strawberries and bright cherries and then pounds the dark crumbly minerality.

I think it is the best Napa Merlot Duckhorn has produced in years. I drank this over 3 days and held up beautiful. Pretty and mouth filling black fruit and berry. Soft tannins and so supple. Drinking wonderfully now but you know it can go for the long haul!

So yummy! The 2013 is delicious and drinkable now but with about 6more months it would be perfect!
