Highlights

  • We’ve proudly crafted a Merlot from the Three Palms Vineyard since our inaugural 1978 vintage
  • Named for its three iconic palm trees, this vineyard is known for producing intense, age-worthy wines
  • Fruit was sourced from the winemaker’s favorite block of this vineyard
  • The vineyard’s rocky and well-drained soil causes the vines to send their roots wide and deep for nutrients

One of California’s legendary vineyards, Three Palms is revered for its history and benchmark wines. Duckhorn Vineyards has been producing a vineyard-designated Merlot from Three Palms Vineyard since our inaugural vintage in 1978. The 83-acre estate vineyard is located on the northeast side of the Napa Valley in Calistoga, on an alluvial fan created by the outwash of Selby Creek. The site is covered with volcanic stones washed down over the centuries from the canyon. The soil is rocky and well-drained, causing the vines to send their roots far, wide and deep to find the necessary nutrients and water. The depth, complexity and age-worthy structure of this unique block selection from Three Palms is sure to impress.
