2012 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

This Merlot-dominated blend reminds us why Duckhorn earned its reputation as one of California's preminent sources for Merlot. The 2012 vintage, with its long hang time, was perfect for making a rich, seamless, structured wine. Winemaker notes: "From its aromas of Santa Rosa plum, creme de cassis, violet and Herbes de Provence to its enticing flavors of olallieberry, sticky toffee and vanilla bean, this is a complex and compelling expression of Napa Valley Merlot."

2012 Ancient Peaks Paso Robles Merlot

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star & Good Value* Although its somewhat juicy, sweetly oaked aromas of ripe cherries send a signal that this is a wine that could and should be enjoyed soon, it turns out to show a little more structure once past its early plumpness and is one on which it would be wise to wait. It has the right fruity pieces in place to commend four or five years of keeping, and it delivers far more than do most at its price level." (11/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "This vineyard from the Santa Margarita Ranch at the southern end of the appellation produces a wine with blackberry, mint, sla ...Read More »

2012 Shafer Napa Valley Merlot (375ml)

91 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2012 Merlot jumps from the glass with brilliant red cherries, plums, flowers, spices and mint. With time in the glass the flavors blossom beautifully as the wine gains texture and resonance. Merlot still suffers from a less than stellar reputation in some circles, which is unfortunate. Few do it better than Shafer when it comes to capturing the fruit-driven exuberance of Merlot. Drink this juicy, resonant red over the next few years. Shafer remains a reference-point winery for Napa Valley. In a region where key people come and go every few years, Sh ...Read More »

2012 Decoy Sonoma County Merlot

Wine Enthusiast: "Taking time to come around aromatically, it opens up with plum and bright red cherry fruit that follow on the palate, a touch of savory tobacco suggested around the tannins. On the finish expect a balance of spice and sweet as black pepper and caramel compete for affection." (10/2014) Wine Spectator: "Rather plush and jammy for a Merlot, with notes of cherry pie and caramel. Drink now through 2017." (10/2014) K&L Notes: From Duckhorn Wine Company.

(6/2010)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Merlot, which comes from both Napa and Sonoma fruit (the Pride Mountain vineyards are split by the county line), exhibits a dense purple color as well as abundant chocolate and berry fruit notes, medium to full body, and great freshness, length, and depth. It is a heady, succulent style of Merlot to drink over the next 7-10 years ...Read More »

2012 Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Merlot

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A cross-Napa Valley blend, the 2012 Merlot is their largest cuvée, and is composed of 85.2% Merlot blended with other Bordeaux varietals. Only 21% new oak is used, so the fruit component dominates. A dense plum/purple color is followed by notes of chocolate, berries, tobacco leaf, forest floor and mocha. This lush, fruit-driven, hedonistic, sensual Merlot can be drunk over the next 7-8 years. (RP)" (10/2014) Connoisseurs Guide: "Nicely defined, black cherry fruit sits in the starring role here even if the wine is on the more structured, slightly sturdy and less outgoing side o ...Read More »

More than a pretty villa, Ferrari-Carano farms 1,400 acres of their own vineyards across Sonoma County, from the bottomland near the Russian River to some of the highest peaks above Alexander Valley, with their own full-time crew and no-expense-spared. Good value in Sonoma County Merlot. "The cool climate, valley-floor vineyards produce supple, fruit-forward wine, while the mountaintop vineyard fruit lends intensity and structure.

2012 Prisoner Wine Co. "Thorn" Napa Valley Merlot

Thorn is a new bottling from winemaker Jen Beloz, who wanted to do something special and reverent with Napa Valley Merlot. The grapes are sourced from small, well-established plots of Merlot that managed to survive the extensive replantings to Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa. The Hudson Vineyard in Carneros and Stagecoach Vineyard in Atlas Peak contribute two such special Merlot plots to this wine. Some Syrah and Malbec are included to round out the depth and fruit, and the wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak (30% new). From the winery: ... Read More »

Sweet, plush and broad, with mouthfilling flavors of dark cherry, cassis, cocoa powder and caramel. Not especially brisk or sharply delineated but finishes with sufficient energy, ripe tannins and very good sweetness and length."

Packaged in an interesting bottle with a label sporting green ink, this 2012 Merlot is made in an explosively rich, blockbuster style. Its opaque purple color is accompanied by oodles of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit intertwined with hints of espresso and chocolate. Full-bodied and super-rich, but not overly extracted or astringent, this beautifully made, full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal Merlot should wine the hearts and minds of many California wine enthusiasts.

2011 Duckhorn "Three Palms Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**Two Stars** The best Merlots are wines that charm in their youths but grow in breadth and gain complexity as the years pass, and this one from Duckhorn is a wine that is nowhere near reaching its best even if it is easy to like and shows impressive range even now. It is fully grounded in the rich, cherry-like qualities that define good Merlot, and it is well-balanced, weighty and seductively supple in feel. It teases with complexing touches of toast, sweet cream, graphite and mint that will be amplified as it ages, and, its very considerable immediate ...Read More »

Smoky aromas of black raspberry, coffee and nutty oak. Lush, fat and sweet, with layered flavors of black raspberry and sweet oak. Quintessential Pride merlot, with strong fruit complemented but not overwhelmed by 100% new oak."

Soft tannins lend succulence and warmth, while the finish is marked by notes of tobacco and toasted oak."

I suspect most wine consumers may prefer this Merlot to some of the more highly rated and concentrated vintages that require a few years of bottle age.

Magnificent in color, aroma, depth and texture; it is polished, elegant, firm and confident. Blossom, fruit, herb and barrel aromas are beautifully interwoven.
