Decoy By Duckhorn Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2014

External Review by WineExpress.com:

For years now Duckhorn Vineyards has produced a Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend under the Decoy label, and Duckhorn fans have been able to enjoy Duckhorn quality at a great price. Because Duckhorn has access to the best growers and the finest quality fruit in the region they've expanded the Decoy line to include varietal wines. This is their 2014 Pinot Noir that they've sourced from prime vineyards in Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Each lot was vinified separately and the wine was aged for 8 months in French oak barrels, 25% new. It shows distinctive Pinot character with notes of black cherry, strawberry, cranberry and cola on a beautifully balanced and vibrant framework. Hints of vanilla and spice linger on the finish. Duckhorn does it again!

Duckhorn Vineyards:
Co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has spent a quarter century establishing itself as one of North America's premier producers of Bordeaux varietal wines. From its modest inaugural vintage of 800 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and 800 cases of Merlot in 1978, to its addition of Sauvignon Blanc in 1982, Duckhorn Vineyards has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today.
