TASTING NOTE: There's black-currant clarity to this clean and luscious cabernet, a blend of Duckhorn's estate-grown fruit with purchased grapes. The dark fruit is layered with brighter black-raspberry flavor and rich chocolate tones from its time in French oak barrels (50 percent new). Relatively light in weight but saturated in flavor, the wine sustains a lovely mineral tension as it opens with air. Score - 93 (wineandspirits.com, Oct. 2019) Price $ 89.95
