Duckhorn Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

California, United States

93 POINTS | Natalie Maclean

Established in 1976, Duckhorn Estate have spent the last 40 years creating a name for themselves as one of the premium producers in North America. While their portfolio has grown over the years, they have always had a reputation for producing iconic reds.

Vinted from 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Petit Verdot, this is rich and ripe with firm tannins keeping things in check. The wine spent 16 months in French oak which has introduced some softer, spicy characters. Approachable now but it's well worth cellaring this for 5 - 8 years.

Tasting Notes

The winery writes "Lush, energetic and intense, this gorgeous Cabernet begins with aromas of blackberry, huckleberry and chocolate, as well as hints of mint, cardamom, clove and graham cracker. On the palate it displays lovely brightness, with firm, resolved tannins framing flavors of boysenberry and black currant. As it evolves in the glass, subtle sweet and savory notes are revealed, carrying the wine to a long, focused finish."

Wine Enthusiast writes "This is a soft, rounded and appealing red, juicy in blackberry and dark cherry. Ripe tannins add to the richness and lush palate, finishing on accents of clove and toasted oak."

Natalie Maclean writes "A full-bodied, smooth Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon-driven red blend with some Merlot. Love the layers of ripe blackcurrant, crushed raspberry, mocha and toasty oak spice flavours, beautifully balanced with vibrant acidity on the palate. Pair with a roast duck. Tannins are structured and fine. Drink or hold."
