Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot 2017

75cl / 14.5%

“Duckhorn takes rich and supple Napa Valley merlot in an elegant direction.

While there may be a lot of juicy blackberry fruit, along with a toasty, smoky presence of oak, both of those elements serve to elevate the texture.

Rather than complexity, this wine is all about supple pleasures, with nothing out of place.”
