Duckhorn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma County Decoy 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This may be Decoy, but the wine's no fake. Always crisp and lively, this SB is dominated by citrus, with an underpinning of lemongrass and vibrant acidity that make it a natural pairing for spicy Thai dishes.

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
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

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.

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. A little bit of melon is mixed with equally quiet but intriguing bits of spice and minerals in this smaller but nicely balanced offering, and its firm finish hinting of herbs and green pears does a good job of keeping it on the varietal track. It is tight enough to reward a year or two of bottle aging, but there is nothing about this one that demands such forbearance.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
