Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes Duckhorn The Discussion Bordeaux Blend 2018

Over three decades ago, before crafting their first vintage, the Duckhorns and their winemaker had a passionate discussion at the kitchen table. Though they debated making a cuvée, they chose to focus on varietal wines. Even so, Duckhorn Vineyards has always remained fascinated by the artful blend of varietals from diverse Napa Valley vineyards. Embodying the depth and complexity of a world-class Estate program, The Discussion represents the pinnacle of the Duckhorn Vineyards portfolio and the ongoing dialogue that defines great winemaking.

With idyllic growing conditions throughout the season, the 2018 vintage has resulted in a vibrant and beautifully layered expression of The Discussion, with firm, round tannins, alluring berry flavors and an elegant underlying savoriness. Pure, bright aromas of pomegranate, cranberry and black raspberry rise from the glass, followed by deeper elements of blueberry and cocoa nibs. On the richly structured palate, a lovely creamy quality accentuates the generous fruit flavors, with hints of cedar and sage adding nuance and depth to a lingering black cherry and bittersweet chocolate finish.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker Wine Advocate - Rated 94:
A deep but scented nose, with an attractive gravel note added to the aroma profile of blueberries, cassis and plums. Full-bodied and tight on the palate, showing well-crafted tannins that are tight and supportive to the juicy berries and plush oak spices. Long and layered finish. Drinkable now, but better from 2024.
