Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2002 Vintage) Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines on Aug-06
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2003 Vintage) Classic curranty fruit combines with a bit of briary spice, hints of olives and wisps of smoke in the deeply constituted aromas and again in the well-focused flavors of this solidly structured, gutsy young wine. Its tannins are a bit abrasive just now but are never outsized or in any way threaten the wine's expression of fruit. It does not tempt premature drinking as do a couple of its mates, but it will age famously and is guaranteed to reward a wait of a half-dozen years or so.
