Duckhorn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma County Decoy 2010
Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting a Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc since 1982. Expanding on this winemaking tradition, Decoy Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc allows our winemaking team the opportunity to explore a different expression of this great grape. This wine was fermented exclusively in stainless steel to achieve a lively expression of Sauvignon Blanc, highlighting grapefruit, kiwi, kaffir lime, lemon zest and fresh-cut grass aromas. The palate is bright and balanced, and the flavors echo the aromas, with additional notes of pineapple, gooseberry and minerals leading to a full, refreshing finish.
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.
Very good Napa sauvignon blanc, well worth the price. Nicely balanced, not too citrusy or tart but just enough tang with lemon and green apple.

This is a delightfully crisp, drily balanced Sauvignon Blanc thatrsquo;s perfect as a cocktail sipper with little appetizers. Made without any oak influence, it shows the varietyrsquo;s grapefruit, Meyer lemon, lime and grassy side, along with zesty acidity.

As fat and succulent as this wine may be, with ripe pineapple, fresh apple and leesy tannin, the structure keeps it discreet and lasting. It finishes with a gentle touch, substantial enough to match an albacore tuna.
An interesting and complex wine, dry and crisp, and unique among California Sauvignon Blancs. Although there's plenty of citrus fruit, it's marked by other things, such as minerals and herbs, and the sweet, olivaceous taste that the variety's Sauvignon na
