2018 Duckhorn Chardonnay Napa Valley 375ml

(Net Item - no discounts apply)

This is consistently one of Napa Valley’s favorite high-level white wines, so we love that it’s available in this demure size perfect for enjoying solo or sharing across a table set for two. This full bodied, creamy white is both complex and alluring. Aromas of pineapple, stone fruit and lime find the buttery embrace of sweet French oak. The palate is round and silky, with abundant minerality to keep all that richness in balance.

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.

A full-bodied, creamy white, showing lots of ripe fruit on the nose with peach pie, baked apple and mango, followed by hazelnut and custard pastry on the palate. Crisp acidity. Drink or hold.
