Duckhorn Vineyards Pinot Noir Anderson Valley Decoy 2008
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.
Flat, unremarkable and uninteresting pinot. I'd have expected more from Duckhorn. - Tasted at Total Wine & More 3/28/10
I did not find this to be a breakthrough at this price point. Better than some, but not as good as many. Average.
The 2008 Decoy Anderson Valley Pinot Noir is a campfire in a bottle. As soon as the cork is popped, the smokey after-effects of the wildfires that ripped through California in '08 are evident in this wine. Well integrated toasty oak flavors, and light cherry and strawberry notes pull everything together on the finish. At just over $20 a bottle, this wine is a steal. Great QPR. Cheers, TheKilsons
I'm really enjoying this bottle!
