Worried about getting too much of a good thing? This smaller size offers the perfect taste of one of Duckhorn’s best vintages to date. Duckhorn has been producing quality Cabernet for over 30 years and each year just keeps getting better. This wine embodies the complexity of the valley, while offering a seamless balance between fruit, oak and tannins. Set your table with this standard-bearer from the Napa Valley.

As Duckhorn Vineyards approaches their 40th anniversary, the estate’s reputation has never been better. Ask any wine lover, and they’re sure to know the name Duckhorn. That’s at least due, in part, to their dedication to making great Merlot as a stand-out varietal wine from the beginning. They were the first house to take Merlot seriously, and their efforts were rewarded by essentially becoming the benchmark for that varietal in California. If there was going to be one high-end Merlot on a sommelier’s wine list, more often than not, it was Duckhorn. Dan and Margaret Duckhorn founded Duckhorn Vineyards in 1978 with several hundred cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and have long been recognized as one of Napa Valleys’ leading lights as a premier producer of Bordeaux varietal wines.
