Tasting Notes For Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot 2020
The Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot 2020 is a stunning wine that embodies the beauty of Napa Valley Merlot. The wine boasts vibrant aromas of ripe red fruits, including red currant, ripe plum, black raspberry, cherry, and sweet baking spices, complemented by hints of tea leaves and cocoa. On the palate, this wine delivers a rich and luxurious experience, with silky tannins and flavors of ripe red berries, pie crust, and fig compote, gliding to a bright and elegant finish.
The wine's exceptional quality is a result of the ideal weather conditions during the 2020 growing season. The relatively dry winter was followed by a mild and temperate spring and summer, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and develop pure, vibrant flavors with supple, fleshy textures. Although the harvest was impacted by wildfires and hot weather in late September, the meticulous selection process ensured that only the highest quality fruit was used to produce this wine. While the 2020 crop was smaller, the resulting wine lives up to the Duckhorn name, displaying beautiful aromas, soft and elegant textures, lively complexity, and lush flavors.
