The Duckhorn Vineyards Stout Vineyard Merlot 2012 is an elegant and layered Merlot. Sweet and savory notes combine for a rich red that will leave you reaching for a second glass. Aromas include Italian leather, tapenade, violet, and vanilla bean. These luxurious fragrances lead effortlessly into a palate of cassis, cranberry, eucalyptus, and graphite. The tannins are fine and dusty, and the finish is long and firm. Consider pairing this red wine with any dinner that you want to be particularly special. It is sure to be a conversation piece.
