About:   Duckhorn Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is a world-renowned wine that has been praised by critics and consumers alike. It is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from some of the best vineyards in Napa Valley, including the Three Palms Vineyard, the Merlot Block Vineyard, and the Gravelly Meadow Vineyard.
 

The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, which gives it a complex and nuanced flavour profile. It is characterised by its dark fruit aromas, such as blackberries, plums, and cassis, as well as its smooth, velvety texture and well-balanced acidity.

Vintage:  The 2018 Duckhorn Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunning wine that embodies the complexity and elegance of the Napa Valley. The wine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot grapes, all of which were grown in some of the valley's most prestigious vineyards.

The 2018 growing season was one of the best in recent memory, with warm days and cool nights that allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and develop complex flavors. The winemaker, Andy Erickson, used a gentle hand in the vinification process, allowing the natural flavours of the grapes to shine through.

Tasting Notes:   The wine has a complex aroma of dark fruits, such as blackberries, plums, and cassis. There are also hints of vanilla, chocolate, and tobacco.  It has a smooth, velvety texture with well-balanced acidity. The flavours of dark fruits are prominent, with hints of spice and herbs.  The wine has a medium-bodied structure and long and lingering finish.
