2012 Duckhorn "The Discussion"

This surprised me. I expected a big, ripe, chocolate covered cherry Cali Cab of a wine. It turned out to be a relatively restrained, old school left bank Bordeaux blend. I guessed the blend to be 70% Cab Sauv + 30% Merlot... and later confirmed it's actually 64% CS, 31% Merlot, 3% Cab Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.

It has the dark fruit, cassis and pencil shavings of a Cab Sauv, and the plushness of a Merlot.
