Wine Description

Crafted from both mountain and valley floor grapes, this beautifully rich and complex wine offers alluring aromas of huckleberry, cardamom, graham cracker, dark chocolate and violets. On the palate, juicy flavors of ripe boysenberry and black tea glide across finely textured tannins, with bright, balanced acidity contributing to a long, elegant finish.

75 reviews for Duckhorn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2020

  1. Rickey Brown

    ’85 Cabs at Amis du Vin tasting lacked interest.

  2. Donald Howard

    Balanced and fruity ’86 red with a lingering finish. Plenty of tannin for aging. 90/100.

  3. Jennifer Fields

    LWB with MPL: Dark magenta. Deep, firm yet ripe fruit in the nose. Great on the palate–wow. Tannic but drinkable with loads of fruit. Rich. 90/100.

  4. Lynn Neely

    A dense wine with ripe cherry and berry flavors, heavy oak, and a long finish. The tannins are tight and aggressive, making it hard to drink on its own.

  5. Judith Steege

    Smooth, balanced and easy to drink Cab blend (87% Cab, 12% Merlot, 0.5% Cab Franc, 0.5% Petit Verdot) with fresh fruit and moderate tannins. Needs more time in the cellar to reach its full potential.

  6. John Andrews

    Outstanding quality, price, and age. Fragrant black fruit nose with integrated oak. Delicious and worth buying more.

  7. Jeffrey Rogers

    Full-bodied with ripe tannins and a creamy texture. Bursting with ripe fruit and balanced sweetness, finishing with a slightly smoky note.

  8. Angela Cummings

    Smooth and ready to drink with nice cab fruit flavors.

  9. Frank Fortune

    Duckhorn’s Napa Valley wine offers an earthy attack with fresh red cherry, black currant, and blackberry midpalate. The vanilla is a bit heavy and overdone with the oak, but it’s a well-made, solid wine. However, it lacks complexity and isn’t worth the $75 price tag. Goes well with grilled steak.

  10. Daniel Rhodarmer

    Rich ruby color with an intense aroma of black fruit, berries, black pepper, vanilla, butter, and biscuit. The taste is bold with high tannins, acidity, and alcohol. A long-lasting taste of black fruits, vanilla, and biscuit.

  11. Joan Halfmann

    Timeless. Enjoy now or age longer.

  12. Aaron Reese

    Aged 10 years, needs decanting, but has a lovely finish. Beware of sharing with greedy family and friends.

  13. Claudia Hildreth

    Average, not remarkable. I prefer Duckhorn Merlot.

  14. Maryann Hardman

    Great value wines with good balance, but lacking complexity.

  15. James Rodriguez

    We enjoyed it.

  16. Carolina Wade

    Dark fruit, oak, dark chocolate on the nose. Plum, blueberry, vanilla, baking spice on the palate. Buttery mouthfeel, long finish. Best paired with beef tournedos.

  17. David Bradley

    Full-bodied with ripe fruit aromas of dark cherries, blackberries & plums, hints of cocoa, spices & oak. Smooth texture with a lingering finish.

  18. Gary Ahner

    Wine is corked.

  19. Adeline Bean

    Smooth, great flavor. Aged perfectly for 8 years. No deterioration.

  20. Tammy Becker

    92 pts possible. Initially lean and acidic, but improved over time. Red fruit, high acidity, and no signs of being past its prime. Great value at $90 from K&L.

  21. Nichol Snelson

    Full and fragrant nose of ripe fruit aromas with notes of cedar, earthy/dusty notes, cocoa, mint, pepper, tobacco, leather, minerals, spices, and a hint of vanilla/oak. Medium-full bodied with a well-balanced and smooth texture. Lingering smooth finish.

  22. Leigha Ragan


  23. Brian Levy

    Subpar wine, thin and lacking robustness. Price doesn’t justify quality.

  24. Gary Jarrell

    Young. Dark berries, cedar, cassis on the nose. Oak, vanilla, and grass on the palate.

  25. Brittany Lukach

    Wine Spectator rates it 90 pts.

  26. Jane Whittemore

    This wine is a masterpiece. Drink it now.

  27. Mae Mcdonald

    Decanter Fine Wine Encounter (The Landmark, London) features ripe blackcurrant, cedar, sweet spice, tight unyielding tannins, and alcohol warmth.

  28. Maria Nishimura

    Mellowed with good depth, drinking nicely.

  29. Phillip Murdock

    Enjoyable cab with subdued tannins, lacking complexity but not fruit forward.

  30. Myrtle Collins

    Suzanne is a great wine, highly recommended.

  31. Lloyd Webb

    Wine was enjoyed at family event, no formal notes.

  32. Maureen Alexander

    Dark ruby with black cherry, blackcurrant, mint, and menthol notes. Sweet blackcurrant, spice, and caramel richness with a hint of heat and grip.

  33. Tina Jones

    Excellent aged Duckhorn with exceptional aging potential of another 10 years.

  34. James Leardi

    Lovely after some time and pairs well with dinner.

  35. Mark Leon

    Smooth Cab blend, great with beef or on its own.

  36. Belen Hill

    2012 Cabernet Sauvignon – Canoehead Central: Complex bouquet of spice, wood, and dark red fruits. Sweet-ish with low acid and a sour finish. Finished fifth overall.

  37. Jose Hertzler

    Peppery with Indian spice on the nose. Stewed fruit taste which isn’t pleasant. Sweet but in a strange way. Tannins are grainy. Medium finish. Needs more aging. Scored 81 but wouldn’t pay more than 60.

  38. Dustin Atchley

    Drink now until 2024/6. Terrific.

  39. Jamie Holben

    Delicious fruit with balanced tannins and acids. Required 2-3 hours to open up.

  40. Robert Guerrero

    Decent blackberry aroma with a hint of bell peppers. Medium-plus tannins and acidity. Okay wine.

  41. Jennifer Macauley

    1990 Duckhorn Cabernet Sauvignon – still drinkable after 30 years. Great flavors. Perfect for New Year’s Eve party.

  42. Kermit Adams


  43. John Mcwaters

    Full-bodied dark fruit with mild tannins, a crowd-pleaser worth $40-ish.

  44. Manuel Pratt

    I’m sorry, as there is no existing review provided, I am unable to rewrite it for you. Could you please provide me with the review so I can assist you better?

  45. Betty Her

    Average wine, better options available at a lower cost.

  46. Kenny Sherling

    Balanced acidity and tannin with a hint of green. Best to hold a bit longer.

  47. Ryan Pierce

    1978 California Cabernet: Port-like with dark berries, fresh palate and pleasant acidity. Enjoyable.

  48. Rachel Valdes

    1978 California wines at Zunfthaus zur Waag, Zurich were surprisingly high quality with primary fruit left, but a broad range with some showing signs of fatigue. Top wines were Phelps Cab Sauv (97), Firestone Cab Sauv (95), and Beaulieu George de Latour Private Reserve (95). Tasting note: Limited expression, low intensity, dark berries with tertiary notes and Asian spice. Palate had a nice tobacco feature, but structure has disappeared leaving only acidity.

  49. Lena From

    This wine has a deep, dark color and a strong, complex aroma of ripe fruits with hints of cocoa, coffee, and spices. It has a medium-full body and a smooth finish. It is currently drinking well but is nearing its peak at 16 years old.

  50. Brittney Lizarraga

    Strong and pleasant wine with a nice finish. Perfectly paired with steak.

  51. Melissa Hirko

    Balanced and structured with blackberry, oak, and dark fruit palate. Low-medium acidity with a tart cherry finish. Similar to Pensfold Bin 704 but overpriced.

  52. Ralph Brinkley

    “Duckhorn wins blind tasting against Heitz and Jordan.”

  53. Amanda Dicks

    Sorry, but I cannot provide a review for “Sandy’s 60th!” as it is not clear what it is referring to. Please provide more context or details for me to work with.

  54. Carol Brown

    California 1978: High-quality wines with impressive fruit remaining, ready to drink with melted tannins and freshness. Mineral accents, less ripeness than current Napa wines, and style unique from Bordeaux. Best reds: Inglenook Limited Cask, Beaulieu GDL Reserve, Stags Leap Cask 23 4.5l, Heitz Bella Oaks, Simi Reserve, Stag’s Leap Cask 23 0.75l. The Late Harvest Riesling from Phelps is the best wine (98pts).

  55. Jody Salazar

    Rich and powerful, yet easy to drink. Notes of black currants, new French oak, blackberries, and cherries. Delicious and fully mature. Drink now-2027. 93.

  56. Robert Mathewson

    Needs 3-hour decant to open up. Exciting aging potential.

  57. Anthony Manthe

    Overpowering licorice taste, unable to finish after first glass. Finishes with a subtle touch.

  58. Carlyn Maynard

    “Great color and flavor, paired well with steak at local restaurant.”

  59. Hannah Ferrel

    Mature CA cab with dried fruits, sandalwood, and cedar. At peak a few years ago, not developing further.

  60. Rochelle Slager

    Better than newer Duckhorn cabs. Would drink again, has aging potential.

  61. Maxine Prater

    Never Received

  62. Jane Hall

    Good wine, enjoyed over two nights. Notes of tobacco, dark fruit, and burnt toast on night two. Cheers.

  63. Amanda Knickerbocker

    Balanced Cali Cab.

  64. Michael Sellers


  65. Ella Aune

    Smooth wine with no aftertaste.

  66. Jeffrey Brown

    Smooth and delicious with no aftertaste.

  67. Anthony Tarver

    Solid Napa cab, fruity with black cherry and blackberry notes. Menthol on the nose. Decent price.

  68. Raymond Hopkins

    Young Napa Cab with black currants, dark cherries, medium acidity and tannins. Oaky finish with veggie notes, a bit hot on the alcohol.

  69. Dustin Mack

    No cork taint. Enjoyable now.

  70. Phyllis Johnson

    Canvasback and Decoy limited tasted better than the oddly fake-y wine.

  71. Rickey Estrada

    Dark ruby in color with some clearing at the edges. Full, fragrant & attractive nose of mature, ripe red fruit aromas of cherries, blueberries & plums with overtones of tobacco & cedar notes, earthy/dusty notes, leather, spices, mint, cocoa/coffee & a slight hint of oak/vanilla in the background. Medium-full bodied with a very good concentration of well balanced & smooth textured, mature, ripe fruit flavors of cherries, blueberries & plums, spices, herbs, minerals & a hint of oak/vanilla. Lingering smooth finish. Drinks quite well at present but at 42 years of age it appears to be at its peak of development, so please drink up! Fill was in lower neck; cork was stained 1/3 up but intact.

  72. Jeremy Anderson

    Great storage helped this wine hold up surprisingly well beyond its drinking window.

  73. David Bierman

    Deep garnet color with a fragrant nose of ripe cherries, blueberries, and plums. Notes of earthy spices, leather, and tobacco add complexity. Medium-full bodied with well-balanced fruit flavors, herbs, and oak undertones. Lingering smooth finish.

  74. Kathy Barfield

    Approachable yet complex, the 2020 Duckhorn has no flaws and boasts a juicy palate of red currant, blackberry, and cedar.

  75. Frank Bayas

    Decent Napa Cab, but slightly green taste.

Cabernet Sauvignon is a red grape varietal that is widely regarded as one of the world's most popular and highly valued wine grapes. This grape is grown in many regions around the world, including France, the United States, Australia, Chile, and Argentina. The wine made from this grape is known for its intense flavor, high tannin content, and longevity. Cabernet Sauvignon is a hybrid grape, the result of a cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, which are both native to the Bordeaux region of France. The grape is known for its thick skin, which helps it to withstand harsh weather conditions, and its small berries, which contribute to its concentrated flavor.
