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.

eductive smoke, mocha, coffee and currant aromas lead to similar flavors. It's rich, smooth and plush, with layers of flavor, depth and intensity. Finishes in a rich, seamless aftertaste. Wine Spectator. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 1999 Duckhorn Merlot Estate 750ml

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.

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.
