Winemaker's Notes:

Over three decades ago, before crafting their first vintage, the Duckhorns and their winemaker had a passionate discussion at the kitchen table. Though they debated making a cuvée, they chose to focus on varietal wines. Even so, Duckhorn Vineyards has always remained fascinated by the artful blend of varietals from diverse Napa Valley vineyards. Embodying the depth and complexity of a world-class Estate program, The Discussion represents the pinnacle of the Duckhorn Vineyards portfolio and the ongoing dialogue that defines great winemaking.

Tasting Notes:

A seamless blend of grapes from the most distinct and coveted lots in our Estate portfolio, this complex, elegant wine is crafted to accentuate grace and harmony, as opposed to overt power, and offers a broad, lush mid-palate, silky tannins, focused fruit and a long, lingering finish. From its nuanced aromatics of black cherry, dark chocolate, orange peel, cedar and cinnamon to its rich and sophisticated flavors of raspberry truffles, cassis, blackberry, olive and herbs, this wine sets a new benchmark for Duckhorn Vineyards winemaking.
