  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($78) Ruby-red. Wild, meaty aromas of black raspberry, licorice, earth, tar, smoke and nutty oak. Quite aromatic in the mouth, with flavors of dark berries and leather given shape by firm acidity. Characterful wine, if rather sauvage Finishes a bit youthfully hard-edged, with notes of leather and meat.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

    A big, dark-colored mouthful of wine, with a mix of racy, earthy, leathery scents, but also a generous core of spicy currant, mineral, cedar and herb. It finishes with a rich, mouthcoating aftertaste and a touch of mocha.

    The full-bodied 2001 Merlot Three Palms Vineyard's opaque ruby/purple hue is followed by a stunning bouquet of sweet kirsch, plum liqueur, blueberries, spring flowers and roasted coffee. Revealing superb richness, impressive purity and a multidimensional mouthfeel, this stunning Merlot can be enjoyed over the next 10-15+ years.

  • Co-founded in 1976 by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn, Duckhorn Wine Company includes Duckhorn Vineyards, Paraduxx, and Goldeneye Winery. Their Duckhorn Vineyards estate is renowned for its Bordeaux varietal wines and since 1982 has also produced a Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Duckhorn commits itself to source the finest fruit in the Napa Valley and subsequently has purchased several properties to join the estate vineyard program. Currently the winery owns six estate vineyards along the slopes of Howell Mountain. Winemakers at Duckhorn aim to treat each vineyard block individually, bringing an artisan's approach to the winery. The winemaker may blend as many as 200 unique distinct lots and use up to 25 types of oak (mostly French) in the final barrel aging. Duckhorn's sister label, Decoy, is a unique blend of Bordeaux varietals that varies from year to year.

    Paraduxx was created for the estate's winemakers to express themselves outside of Duckhorn's Bordeaux-style focus. The wine is a Napa Valley red blend consisting primarily of Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. Goldeneye Winery and its sister label, Migration, produce Pinot Noir sourced from cool weather fruit in Mendocino County's Anderson Valley.
