Duckhorn Three Palms Merlot 2019 - 1.5 Litre Bottle

Product description

The exceptional 2019 growing season produced a fascinating and elegantly full-bodied expression of Merlot at the famed Three Palms Vineyard. Luxurious aromas of black plum, boysenberry, and dark chocolate leap from the glass, followed by hints of sweet molasses and vanilla bean. On the palate, firm tannins and undercurrents of energetic acidity add brightness and poise to lush dark berry flavors, while promising a long life ahead.

Blend: 92% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc

95 Points - James Suckling

I like the savory nose here, with notes of coffee, spiced plum, overturned earth and bark. Full-bodied with fine, silky tannins. Expressive, but focused, with really clean and clear dark fruit blending nicely with ground spice and grilled herbs. Totally delicious. This will age very nicely.

The 2019 Duckhorn Three Palms Vineyard Merlot is powerful yet elegant, and it stays long on the palate. This wine shines with aromas and flavors of black fruit, licorice, earth, and oak. Enjoy with roast game birds.

90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Merlot Three Palms Vineyard is solid and a terrific expression of Merlot. Cassis, black cherries, graphite, scorched earth, and lead pencil notes all define the nose, and it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a supple, elegant mouthfeel, and a good finish.
