Decoy Red Wine Sonoma County

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) The 2009 vintage has yielded a broad and inviting expression of our Decoy Red Wine, with classic Napa Valley fruit notes and a silky, mouthcoating mid-palate. The aromas spotlight layers of mocha, mulberry and cassis with a subtle, yet sophisticated hint of cigar box. On the palate, this wine is soft and appealing with abundant flavors of blackcurrant, plum, hazelnut and licorice.

Winemaker's Notes

This approachable wine is layered with bright acidity and forward fruit balanced by well-integrated tannins. The aroma is distinct with raspberry, plum, black pepper, tobacco and black olive. The flavors are abundant with blackberry, bittersweet chocolate, cedar, toasty oak, and a caramel finish.

Mixed cherries with some layerings of flavor but not much, some chocolate and spice, moderate tannins. Much better on the second day. Do you find this review helpful?

    Drinkable. But not what I expect from a $30 bottle. Get it for under $20 at Costco.

    Good acidity, but ripe tannins. Blackcurrant, licorice, ripe plum, vanilla bean.
