Epic Legend In The California Cab World
Duckhorn Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon is an Epic California Cab. This wine receives the same care and attention as Duckhorn’s iconic Napa Estate wines.
When Duckhorn purchased Ridgeline vineyards in 2012, it gave them access to some of Alexander Valley’s best grapes. These grapes allowed them to create this epic, value Cab. It’s pure Duckhorn and drinking beautifully right now.
2018 was an excellent vintage in Sonoma and offered beautifully ripe fruit. This is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 4% Zinfandel, 2% Petite Syrah, 2% Syrah and 1% Petit Verdot, The wine is aged in 40% new French oak for 10 months.
This is a wine that can bring you to your knees. It shows bold flavours of black cherry, raspberry, black currant. It hits subtle notes of dark chocolate, liquorice and spice. The tannins are well rounded and the finish is long and engaging. Duckhorn does it again!
Twenty five years ago, Duckworth launched the inaugural vintage of Decoy Napa Valley Red Wine. And now, Decoy is an important staple in the Duckhorn Wine Portfolio.
Decoy has a reputation for delivering great quality at a remarkable price. In addition, Decoy has established a loyal following for its distinctive style. That’s because these ready-upon-release wines are capable of expressing their full charm and complexity in their youth. Building on this foundation, Decoy has become a renowned winery in its own right.
What the Critics Say
“A robust red wine blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Merlot, 3% Zinfandel and splashes of Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah matured in French oak. Rich with generous black and blueberry fruit, smoky vanilla, mocha and savoury herb flavours with balanced acidity. Tannins are firm but manageable. Enjoy with grilled beef or lamb dishes.” 92 points – Natalie Maclean, Jan 2020 (2017 Vintage)
