Duckhorn Vineyards – The Three Palms Vineyard – Merlot 2012 – Napa Valley

(84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec) The nose is fine, fat, elegant and well-made. It reveals notes of blackberry candy and ripe fruits combined with slight notes of licorice. The palate is elegant, mineral (nicely mineral), well done and offers a nice fresh frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, crushed strawberry and black fruits associated with slight notes of minerality, toasted oak as well as discreet notes of chocolate. Tannins are fine. Good length. A nice wine!
