Dense purple hue. Complex scents of black cherry, cassis and sweet tobacco. Big, rich flavors of raspberry, Bing cherry and cocoa with secondary nuances of tea and mocha. Creamy acidity and velvety tannins in the black cherry-driven close.

Polished and supple, Duckhorn's "standard" Napa Valley Cabernet is a splendid example of what makes the Napa Valley America's single most important wine region. Even "standard" Cabernets can be positively stunning. The '05 Duckhorn is supple and smooth, showing layers of sweet red fruits, mouth-watering freshness, hints of spice, and exceptional persistence of flavor.
