Cherry jam and thick oak on the uptake. Citrus peels commingle with leather gloves on the tongue. Tangy zing-zag on the finish. Read more

Very nice wine with fillet mignon. Smooth and not over-powering.

Normally I'm not a huge Cabernet Sauvignon fan, however, this is not your normal cab. Comparatively, it's fairly light bodied. If you're looking for a big robust cab, keep looking. If you like cabs, and are entertaining someone who likes something a little less bold, give this a go! The bouquet featured notes of Chocolate, Black Cherry, a little vanilla. Then on the taste it had a slight plum & black cherry taste, tinged with oak. A lingering berry taste rounds out this well balanced wine. Wouldn't stand up to a ribeye, but I wouldn't hesitate to pair this with a lean cut like a Chateaubriand or Filet. Ready to drink immediately.

Rocky, earthy backbone around bright red and black fruit like berries and currants. Mid palate brings some hints of mocha and cocoa and they last through the finish. - Tasted at winery 4/18/10

This classic Cabernet showcases elements of currant, cherry, plum and olive. Great body and a long finish!

Lush and enticing with aromas that strike an appealing balance between vibrant cranberry and deeper, dark berry notes, with sophisticated hints of white pepper and forest floor. The palate is rich and beautifully structured, offering a lush core of dark, ripe fruit wrapped in smooth, firmly textured tannins.

Wow! We were so impressed by this latest release of Duckhorn 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet. A little softer than previous vintages and very elegant. Quite young still, however this wine will age with grace.

Elegant, supple and harmonious, with rich layers of spicy currant, black cherry, blackberry, herb, sage and mint, ending with fleshy, graceful tannins. Drink now through 2011. 428 cases made.

Duckhorn, the house that brought great Merlot to the Napa Valley back in the day (1980s), has also for years been turning out some wonderful Cabernet Sauvignons. With this 2003 from its Patzimaro Vineyard, we have such a wine.Tasted a couple of months ago and just about ready to be released, the wine is showing chocolate malt and blackberry aromas. On the palate it’s soft and smooth with gorgeous fruit and wonderful balance. Hold it for a year and then see it improve over the following 25 years or so.Patzimaro is located in the St. Helena appellation at the base of Spring Mountain. The site was named for the town of Patzimaro de Aviña in honor of the Hurtado Family, an important part of the Duckhorn Vineyards winemaking team since ‘87. The vines are 14 years old.The wine was aged for 1½ years in 100 percent new French oak. The listed alcohol is 14.5 percent and there were 428 cases made.This Cabernet was also selected as an <i>Appellation Signature Wine </i> by a panel of St. Helena winemakers in an Appellation Discovery tasting on June 22, 2006.

Winemaker's Notes:

82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. The 2012 vintage has yielded a lush and appealing expression of Decoy Cabernet with alluring black cherry and raspberry jam aromas, as well as more subtle notes of nutmeg, spice and chocolate. On the palate, lovely layers of raspberry and plum are supported by excellent structure and seamlessly integrated oak. Barrel aged 12 months in 100% French oak (35% new).
