Rich black fruit aromas of blackberry and bramble fruit. Flavors are full with candied plum, fresh blackberry compote, cassis, blueberry and a hint of toasty oak. The concentrated flavors follow through to the long finish.

This enticing wine displays lovely aromas of ripe strawberry and raspberry, as well as subtle notes of sandalwood and spice. On the palate, it is elegantly structured with abundant red fruit, excellent mid-palate weight and a lingering finish with a hint of fresh earth.

The aromas are ripe and appealing, offering layers of strawberry jam, raspberry and sweet vanilla, as well as hints of chocolate-covered cherries and white pepper. On the palate, the entry is full and balanced with lovely cranberry notes supported by the subtle influence of fine oak.

Winemaker's Notes:

This enticing Sonoma County wine highlights a bright red-fruit and spice expression of Zinfandel. The majority of the fruit came from elite vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley, an area universally recognized for producing exceptional high-end Zinfandel. Varietal Content 87% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah Cooperage 85% French Oak, 10% American Oak, 5% Hungarian Oak Barrel Aging: 12 Months Age of Barrels: 35% new, 65% second vintage Winemaker Notes With a focus on hillside grapes from the renowned Dry Creek Valley, this is perhaps the richest and most robust expression of Decoy Zinfandel we have ever produced. Aromas of spicy dark fruit flow from the glass underscored by oak-inspired notes of vanilla and clove. On the palate, flavors of ripe berry and bramble mingle with hints of Christmas spices and mocha with polished tannins and lingering acidity adding to a long, satisfying finish.
