Winemaker Notes

A classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet, this wine combines beautiful complexity with rich intensity. Layers of blackberry, huckleberry and black currants are supported by firm, dusty tannins that frame the fruit. On the palate, it is juicy and bright, with luxurious cassis and dark berry flavors supported by notes of fig, cardamom, clove and cracked black pepper that linger on the long, well-structured finish.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

WW 92
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: With nearly 40 years under their Cabernet Sauvignon belt, Duckhorn Vineyards has established themselves as one of Napa's premier producers of this grape variety. The 2016 vintage is beautifully balanced and delicious. TASTING NOTES: This wine is smooth and well-textures with just enough sweet tannins to give it structure. Its aromas and flavors of blueberries and blackberries and open-knit. Pair it with an oven-baked eye of round roast. (Tasted: December 12, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

James Suckling

Aromas of black olives and currants with hints of flowers and stones. Medium to full body, chewy and fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows some tea-leaf and spice undertones. 86% cabernet sauvignon, 8% merlot, 4% petit verdot and 2% cabernet franc. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator
Warm plum, blackberry and boysenberry reduction notes glide through, infused with sage, melted licorice and warm tobacco leaf accents. Takes on a gently mulled feel on the fleshy finish. Drink now through 2025.
