I know Merlot Madness was back in October but what can I say, I can be slow out of the gate sometimes, my wine pick comes from a winery that is renown for being the benchmark for this varietal, served at Presidential nominations and the white house. It is a treat for this time of year, at $59.95 a bottle in our market, but delish, share with your wine loving friends, or not, keep for yourself, just kidding, the wine is from the Napa Valley, it is the Duckhorn Vineyards Merlot 2012.
A Merlot Blend
—VINTAGES#: 992529 STYLE - Full-bodied & Smooth $59.95
A fresh style of Merlot with light chocolate and blueberry character. Medium body, firm tannins and a crisp finish, full bodied, smooth.
And we interviewed the winemaker Renee Ary, a brilliant winemaker, she’s been at Duckhorn for about 12 years now and guides the entire Duckhorn portfolio.
