Duckhorn Vineyards Chardonnay Sonoma County Decoy 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Like all of our Decoy wines, our Decoy Sonoma County Chardonnay benefits from the passion, skill and experience of our Duckhorn Wine Company team. Exploring the diversity of the Sonoma County winegrowing region allows our winemaking team greater flexibility during the blending process. Stretching from Cloverdale to Annapolis to San Pablo Bay, Sonoma County encompasses an array of microclimates, soil types, elevations, and terroirs, yielding a unique and appealing expression of Chardonnay." -Winery

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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Herbal peach aromas with a hint of fennel. Flavors are full and rich, cream and peach flavors mingle with a bit of apricot, honeysuckle and a touch of golden raisins on the medium finish.

Not bad, but not great Sonoma coast chard. A tad heavy on the oak and fairly one dimensional in that there's minimal fruit and light to moderate acidity. A touch of smoke and burnt butterscotch that's a tad heavy on the tongue.
