Our 2007 vintage of The Discussion is the product of one of the finest growing seasons in memory. As with many of the greatest wines in the 35-year history of Duckhorn Vineyards, this vintage of The Discussion celebrates the timeless union of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to achieve a wine that is rich, complex and elegantly harmonious. Refined aromas of mulberry, hazelnut, leather, cedar, tobacco and sweet spices give way to deep rich flavors of blueberry, black plum, cassis, clove and chocolate. Given time to breathe, these flavors evolve in the glass gaining additional depth and complexity, while developing warm, earthy tones and hints of toasted coconut.

Wine EnthusiastDuckhorn's new releases are so good, you might hesitate to make the investment on this Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot blend. True, it's not the most drinkable of their wines, at this time, but it easily is the most intense and concentrated. Dazzles with a molten core of sweet blackberries, blueberries and cassis, deep and long in the finish. Don't insult it by drinking before 2013, but you're better served by holding for far longer, even into the 2020s.
