Duckhorn made their first Cabernet Sauvignon in 1978 right alongside their first vintage of Three Palms Vineyard Merlot. With the exception of the 1979 vintage, they haven’t missed a year yet. Blending fruit from estate vineyards and top Napa Valley growers, Duckhorn Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon embodies the complexity of the valley. A classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet, this wine combines beautiful complexity with rich intensity. Layers of blackberry, huckleberry and black currants are supported by firm, dusty tannins that frame the fruit. On the palate, it is juicy and bright, with luxurious cassis and dark berry flavors supported by notes of fig, cardamom, clove and cracked black pepper that linger on the long, well-structured finish.
