2003 Duckhorn Merlot Napa Valley

Wine Description

(From 2000 Vintage) This wine starts off with dark, funky earth scents that blend well with coffee and medicinal notes. The palate is full of rich, red fruit, accented by arugala and dark chocolate. Overall, a hint lean with cherry and cinnamon lingering on the long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine shows aromas of sweet plum sauce, vanilla, chocolate, cedar and butterscotch with big, forward black cherry and black berry fruit in the mouth. A balanced middle with a hint of toasty oak is paired with a nice bite from rounded tannins, and a long pleasant finish. This wine pairs well with grilled meats and wild game with herb-infused, wild-berry sauces, hearty pasta dishes and Pacific Northwest Salmon.
