Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting classic Napa Valley wines for 40 years. This winemaking tradition has grown to include seven Estate vineyards, located throughout the microclimates of the Napa Valley. Focused on quality and consistency, these vineyards are an essential element in making wines of distinction.
Pioneering Merlot as a premium varietal, Duckhorn Vineyards now makes several elegant Merlot and distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings that showcase its vineyard sites. Duckhorn Vineyards has been named one of the “Top 100 Wineries” in the world seven times by Wine & Spirits, and the 2014 Duckhorn Vineyards Napa Valley Merlot Three Palms Vineyard was named the “2017 Wine of the Year,” by Wine Spectator. The Duckhorn Vineyards winemaking program is led by acclaimed Winemaker Renee Ary. Our iconic Estate House in St. Helena welcomes guests by-appointment to taste our world-class Napa Valley wines and to enjoy the wrap-around veranda.
The relatively cool climate of Carneros has yielded a dazzling red-berry driven expression of Merlot, with vibrant layers of cranberry, raspberry, Bing cherry, sage and cedar. On the palate, it is rich and round, with polished, fine-grain tannins framing the luxurious fruit. As it evolves, hints of blueberry, vanilla and sweet oak emerge, drawing the wine to long, elegant finish with notes of black raspberry and sweet tea leaves.
