Decoy Duckhorn Red Sonoma County 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

63% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. Rich and concentrated, this full-bodied wine displays alluring layers of blackberry and ripe cherry, along with hints of spearmint and caramel. On the palate, the voluptuous fruit flavors are underscored by plush tannins that carry the wine to a long, silky finish. Alcohol 13.9%.

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.

For years Duckhorn Vineyards produced a Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend under the Decoy label, and Duckhorn fans have been able to enjoy Duckhorn quality at a great price. Now that Decoy by Duckhorn has really taken off as a super value Sonoma brand with the Red Blend comes from different vineyards but displays the same quality and value as the original. This 2015 is perfect example. A blend of 63% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 6% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot aged in 100% French oak. The wine is rich and concentrated and displays alluring layers of blackberry and ripe cherry, along with hints of spearmint and caramel. On the palate, the voluptuous fruit flavors are underscored by plush tannins that carry the wine to a long, silky finish. Another winner from Duckhorn!
