Co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has spent forty years establishing itself as one of North America’s premier producers of Napa Valley wines. From its modest inaugural vintage of 800 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and 800 cases of Merlot in 1978, to its addition of Sauvignon Blanc in 1982, Duckhorn Vineyards has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today.  The winery’s seven estate vineyards are located in alluvial fans of Napa Valley and the much sought after Howell Mountain slopes.   

Since 2014 the wines are made under the guidance of accomplished head winemaker Renée Ary who started at Duckhorn as an assistant winemaker in 2003 and has been producing knock out wines since that time.  Winemaker Renee Ary works with each vineyard block separately and harvests when flavours are optimal and tannins are their softest. She approaches winemaking in an artisanal manner, by tasting and blending from close to 200 lots, separately barrel ageing each lot in oak from various cooperages. The result are wines of great finesse, personality and depth.  

Tasting Notes

Elegant and fragrant with aromas of red currant, dried cherry, cigar box, cocoa, tobacco leaf and fig. On the palate, this wine is fresh and supple with flavours of spiced plum, rhubarb and red currant supported by dusty, fine-grained tannins and hints of cedar and sage.
