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 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.

90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good red-ruby. Slightly jammy aromas of dark berries, chocolate and graphite. 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." (5/2014)91 points Antonio Galloni: "White truffle, smoke, licorice, tobacco and iron are some of the notes that emerge from the 2012 Merlot.

2002 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Merlot

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Full and delicious, Pride's merlot achieves a balanced ripeness at the mountaintop border of Napa and Sonoma counties. The wine has density of fruit while it retains a spot-on varietal identity, a flavor of black cherry and rose petal jam. Tannins amplify the richness with a chocolate warmth, evenly meshed with the fruit across the palate." (6/2005)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "What a fabulous Merlot. Yes, it’s dense in texture, like molten metal, with melted tannins, but it’s kept lively with clean acids.

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.

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.

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 »

Magnificent in color, aroma, depth and texture; it is polished, elegant, firm and confident. Blossom, fruit, herb and barrel aromas are beautifully interwoven. The tightly packed fruit has it all, from red, blue and black berries on to cherry and cassis. The mid-palate, though quite full, is fleshy and tight. The acids are firm but not sour, the tannins fine and smooth and ripe. The finish, still young and com ...Read More »

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 »

Frankly, I’m not sure a Napa Merlot can be any more complex than this. With a deep plum/purple color and round, juicy, full-bodied opulence, this 2003 could easily compete with the greatest Pomerols or St.-Emilions.

It reveals a black/purple color, terrific fruit intensity, a big, weighty, blackberry and cherry-scented nose, and plenty of volume and power in the mouth.
