Nice example of the style, plums, violets, just a bit thin. Pricy.

Long, round and smooth. Tannic and dry but not overbearing. Nice balance and Great acidity. Would love to see this with 10+ years age.

Wine club gathering with dear friends. Two whites and two reds, all tasted blind.

This was the Merlot I had so many years ago that changed my perception on what could be done with the varietal. Love this stuff. It can hang with many of the big boys and exhibits nice finesse and depth with loads of espresso, ripe red fruits, and tar/balsamic.

California Merlot that rivals excellent right bank Bordeaux. Full bodied, well integrated tannins, ripe but not overbearing. Quite different from Duckhorn's more standard Merlot don't think you have experienced Duckhorn Merlot until you try the Three Palms bottling. Drinking perfectly right now. Pairing well with London broil, assorted cheeses, and some John Denver tunes on the deck the day before Labor Day. Salute!
