Duckhorn Merlot is always solid. Very consistent from vintage to vintage. Elegant.

Once this wine opened up after a 30 min decant, it was superb! Aromas of clay pot, leather, blackberries, cherries and spices. Palette was delighted with cherries, clay pot, fruitcake and anise. Supple tannins and medium acidity.

Ten months on from the last bottle, this remains smooth, dark, and lush. Duckhorn Merlot is a standby for me and 2015 was a lovely vintage.

Plummy fruit with hints of baked herbs and Forrest Floor. Oaky notes. Alcohol really came through on the finish, which did make the wine a bit sharp.

Pop and pour. A dark ruby red. On the nose: red fruit, vanilla, floral. Taste: plum, raspberry, caramel, a little bitter tannins on a medium finish.
