Duckhorn Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley the Discussion Estate Grown 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

As is always the case, we blended The Discussion using the very best barrels of wine from the finest blocks of our estate vineyards in 2008. These wines weren’t chosen for their overt power—they were selected for their complexity and completeness, with the goal of creating a balanced and harmonious blend. While there is abundant, rich upfront fruit in the aromas and on the palate, what makes this wine so noteworthy is its layered sophistication. Throughout the drinking experience, elements of black currant, spicy plum, cherry cola and chocolate-covered raspberries evolve in the glass, mingling with appealing black licorice, ginger, allspice and coconut notes.

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.
