Tasting Notes

Taut and densely packed, 2020 Duel delivers its trademark earthiness and spice with notes of currant, black peppercorn, and dried herbs that lift from the glass.

On entry, juicy crushed blackberries and crème de cassis fill the palate, enhanced by intriguing herbal notes off spiced chai, acacia wood, and tobacco lent by Shiraz. Cabernet Sauvignon adds freshness and vibrancy, with impressive tannin and structure.
