Decoy is part of the Duckhorn Wine Company. Light straw with fresh aromas of stone fruits and floral notes. On the palate apple and peach flavors with a light touch of citrus. Good balance, fresh acidity, medium finish ending with a sweet touch.

Pomegranate/tomato smell - taste is better but overall not good (drinkable)

The Generous Pour at The Capital Grill. This delightful wine event stacked with Houston Restaurant Weeks was an instant win 💯

A bit unusual on the nose but agreeable on the palate.

Color of bubbly egg white. Nose is plenty, with seducing nutty note and sweet tropical fruits like citrus, green apple, and sprites. Taste is not as flavorful as the nose, with bittersweet zest and spice note taking the lead, drier than I expect. Decide to let her breathe for a moment. After breathing, taste of green and apple, and spice like thyme and savory spice show up. Aftertaste is quite missing with a bit zesty note. Not too impressed with the price tag.

A household fav. The chard is good but so are the other decoy wines. Can't go wrong.
