Duckhorn Vineyards Merlot Howell Mountain 2004, 89 points

2002 Duckhorn Vineyards Merlot Howell Mountain

(USA, California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain)

I have to say that Duckhorn is the only Merlot I like but I am starting to feel that its over priced.

Dark ruby. Nose is rich and creamy with ripe cherries and spices and a hint of vanilla.
Medium body, with ripe fruits, nice oak with a good dose of vanilla, little earthy, black olives and spices.
Not real complex and it a nice wine but, again, overpriced at 70 dollars.
