DUCKHORN VINEYARDS Merlot, Carneros 2015

The 2015 Carneros Merlot was aged in 50% new French oak for 16 months prior to bottling. Needing a one hour decant to fully unwind, the wine shows off a lovely combination of red currants, red cherries and rose petals on the nose. The palate is exceedingly smooth, underlined by a lovely saline streak. Cigar box, red cherry cordial and teaberry flavors continue to develop in this beautiful Merlot. While appealing now, I expect this will continue to evolve over the next fifteen plus years.
