Natalie's Score: 93/100

Fleshy black plums and some smoke wrap themselves around your senses. Slide into this wine and enjoy. Ultra-plush red wine for diehard merlot fans seeking the Platonic ideal of merlot. Founders Daniel and Margaret Duckhorn have created quite a following for their Merlot-based wines since they first made them in the 1970s, as well as other classic Bordeaux grapes. Cellar this beauty or enjoy it with grilled pork chops tonight.

Merlot food pairings: bison burgers, steaks, crown pork roast.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An aromatic Napa Valley Merlot with wild strawberries, red plum, vanilla and slight spice on nose and palate. Pair this with elk burgers or the classic roast pork match.
Tasted Oct. 2016
Ripe, smoky black plum are the hallmarks of this plushy pork wine from Duckhorn -- a real joy to drink. Founders Daniel and Margaret Duckhorn have created quite a following for their Merlot-based wines since they first made them in the 1970s, as well as other classic Bordeaux grapes. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
