Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot 2013

86% Merlot, 9.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.5% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc. Fruit sourced from several individual vineyard lots, incorporating fruit from Duckhorn’s Estate Vineyards and from top independent growers throughout the Napa Valley. Fermented over 8-10 days at 27°C. Aged for 16 months in French oak 225L barrels of which 20% new. Aromas of Asian spice, red currant, plum and blueberry are supported by a subtle streak of earthiness. The palate is both velvety and balanced with flavours that echo the aromas. These flavours are held together by granular tannins and accented by oak-inspired notes of molasses and nougat.
