1997 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

SKU #310346 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby-red. Black raspberry, red- and blackcurrants and dark chocolate on the nose, plus hints of mint and green tobacco. Juicy, fruit-driven flavors of dark berries and cocoa powder, complicated by a whiff of meat. Offers classic '97 texture and sweetness. Ripe acids carry the fruit. Finishes with firm but smooth tannins and a note of Cuban tobacco. A youthful, fresh merlot with considerable appeal. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2000)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Their “regular” Merlot. Packed with earth, plum and oak aromas, but fairly closed. In the mouth, there’s fantastic density and concentration; a chewy wine that delivers plum and mocha flavors. The finish goes on forever. Should improve with a few years of age. Inner quote mark (3/2000)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows a strong cedary oak and earthy flavor at this stage, but also enough polished currant, anise and spice notes that firm up on the finish. Inner quote mark (3/2000)
