Duckhorn Vineyards – Three Palms Vineyard 2015 Merlot – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and offers a slight concentration as well as elegance. It reveals notes of cassis, ripe plum, crushed blackberry and small notes of liquorice associated with touches of ripe raspberry as well as hints of gray pepper, tobacco and discreet notes of nutmeg. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, precise, elegant, very slightly tight and offers a small straightness, a slight tension, a small concentration, power as well as a slight suavity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy blackberry, crushed cassis and small notes of plum associated with small touches of liquorice, very slight hints of vanilla as well as an imperceptible touch of almond and grove. Tannins are fine and a bit chewy. Good length.
