Rich and concentrated, this wine reveals lush layers of blueberry, blackberry and sweet rhubarb. Hints of caramel and toasty oak add depth and complexity, while framing the voluptuous fruit, and drawing the flavors to a long, multifaceted finish.
Blend: 52% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Sirah, 8% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot
90 Points Robert Whitley, Wine Review Online - Duckhorn’s second label, Decoy seldom approaches the level of excellence the big dog achieves on a regular basis, but that’s not a knock. The Decoy wines are superb and are a fraction of the price. This red blend is heavy on the Merlot (52 percent) and shows it, with a smooth, supple palate and seductive aromas of blueberry, boysenberry and cassis. Well balanced, it finishes with a touch of wood spice. It’s both delicious and affordable.
