About the wine

One of Napa’s most famous single vineyards, Three Palms has been a cornerstone of the Duckhorn portfolio since 1978, racking up countless top scores and proving Bordeaux varieties--not just Cabernet Sauvignon--can thrive in Napa.

The 2016 Three Palms is polished and smooth, offering intense dark fruit, with an impressive marriage of power and finesse. A perfect wine for holiday tables, don’t miss this chance to put a Napa Valley icon on your table.

Merlot might be making a comeback, but Duckhorn never went out of style in the first place. Three Palms vineyard has been the site of prime Merlots since 1978, when Duckhorn first entered the Napa Valley and rewrote the rules in a region dominated by Cabernet Sauvignons.

Now, Duckhorn wines define New World Merlots with velvet textures, lingering tannins, and incredible ageability and Three Palms is often viewed as the “Petrus of the New World”.

"I’m not a huge merlot fan unless it’s really good merlot.....and this is really good merlot. Dark red in the glass, bing cherry and huckleberry and towards the end I got some rose petal too. Medium acidity, medium+ alcohol, silky tannins and a medium+ body. Extended finish on this excellent wine....pairs particularly well with a creamy cheese." Glen M.

Finally got to taste this legend! Lives up to all the hype!" Franco T.

"Blended with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec, this vintage is superb and exuberant in flavors of chocolate-covered plum, baking spice and dried herb. Structured, robust and mineral-driven, it is powerful yet balanced. Enjoy 2026–2036."

"The 2016 Duckhorn Three Palms Vineyard Merlot is another stellar release by the talented Renee Ary. This Merlot has 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec, and as was aged in 100% new French oak for eighteen months. As this slowly unwinds in the glass it exudes wonderful characteristics of ripe chocolate covered bing cherry and shades of sweet pipe tobacco that mingle with the dusty terroir nuances that all take shape. The palate is plush, giving an err of decadence, as the rich velvety mouthfeel gives a feel of opulence. Wonderful glavors of ripe dark cherries, black forest cake and dark licorice collide with dusty minerals and cigar box and linger on the finish. This stunning Merlot possesses the potential cellar well for decades, however it is already outstanding at this early stage."

"Duckhorn’s Three Palms bottlings inevitably vie for top honors, and this latest incarnation is a deep and character-loaded wine rife with concentrated, black cherry fruit and decked out with a lovely complement of sweet, slightly caramelly oak. It is broad and full-bodied on the palate, and, although it teases with early suppleness as good Merlot is wont to do, it is, in fact, a very solidly built wine that suggests a bit of Cabernet structural influence and gradually tightens and finishes with moderate tannins making a good case for at least four or five more years of age"

"Vibrant acidity supports polished flavors of plum tart, dried cherry and dark olive, backed by crisp tannins. Dark chocolate notes merge with herbal accents on the liltingly smoky finish. Drink now through 2024."
