Duckhorn Vineyards Merlot Howell Mountain 1997

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Roasty dark chocolate, clove, dark red and black fruit, black cherry, currant and cassis on the nose. It's rich, decadent and filled with still lush red and black fruit. Black cherry, earth and toasty oak. Great structure and drinking spectacularly! 99 pts. (20/20) France vs. US Blind Tasting 6/15/12

Duckhorn Vineyards:
Co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has spent a quarter century establishing itself as one of North America's premier producers of Bordeaux varietal wines. From its modest inaugural vintage of 800 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and 800 cases of Merlot in 1978, to its addition of Sauvignon Blanc in 1982, Duckhorn Vineyards has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today.

The 1997 Merlot Howell Mountain exhibits a dark ruby color as well as a sweet, berry-scented nose with subtle earth and pain grille in the background. This fleshy, medium to full-bodied, and supple offering is best consumed over the next 5-7 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 1997 Duckhorn Merlot Howell Mountain 750ml
