Smooth and harmonious, with layers of supple, well-integrated currant, herb, tobacco and light mocha-scented oak. An elegant, well-crafted wine that wows you with finesse and grace, offering a pleasing earthiness on the finish. Drink now through 2007... Wine Spectator.

Ripeness may have become a buzzword in Napa, but here you can taste it: The tannins are immaculately ripe, giving a succulence to the wine. Yet somehow it doesnrsquo;t lose the trademark red currant flavor of Duckhorn, the lift of the acidity setting off a blast of flavor.
An enticing mix of ripe fruit and toasty oak, this is a complex, rich and elegant wine, with well-focused currant, spice, black cherry and plummy notes. Enough tannin to merit short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2006.
Bright ruby-red. Black raspberry, game, mint and roasted nuts on the expressive nose. Sweet, thick and pliant in the mouth, with notes of black raspberry, boysenberry and dark chocolate, plus a distinct hint of confiture. Very Merlot. Long finish features ripe tannins and sweet oak. Way better than the rsquo;98 version of this wine.
