Decoy Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2013
Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc since 1982. Expanding on this winemaking tradition, Decoy Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc allows our winemaking team the opportunity to explore a different expression of this great grape from another recognized California appellation. The 2013 growing season delivered a vibrant and aromatic expression of Sauvignon Blanc with lovely layers of mango and papaya, balanced by notes of citrus zest and orange blossom. On the palate, this wine is soft and velvety with flavors of white peach, grapefruit and melon leading to a long, crisp finish. Eight vineyards harvested. 100% stainless steel fermentation.
Editorial Reviews for Decoy Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
Light intensity aromas of quince and gooseberry. Flavors are full with medium plus intensity, lemon lime and tart acidity. Crisp and fresh wine, perfect for sipping.
Four and a half glasses
Very good Napa sauvignon blanc, well worth the price. Nicely balanced, not too citrusy or tart but just enough tang with lemon and green apple.
First off a disclaimer, I like @duckhornwine. Now that there is a full like of Decoy wines I had to try some. The Sauvignon Blanc uses a good percentage of Semillon which I like. The wine is fresh and vibrant on the nose. There is a lot of citrus in the taste and lots of acid that is balanced by semillon. Great value from a great producer.
Very nice floral and peach tones. Crisp attack. Rounded mid palate. Very nice.
tropical fruit nose...very crisp..nice acidity.
Well balanced. Has a nice finish.

An interesting and complex wine, dry and crisp, and unique among California Sauvignon Blancs. Although there's plenty of citrus fruit, it's marked by other things, such as minerals and herbs, and the sweet, olivaceous taste that the variety's Sauvignon na
This frames Napa Valley ripeness in an elegant white, holding passionfruit and peach flavors to a level of delicacy that keeps them clean. A hint of asparagus-like greenness doesnrsquo;t detract from the persistence of the fruit. Serve this as an aperitif with a seafood terrine.
