Tastes like a Safeway Pinot. Expected more.

It was more than 20 years ago that the inaugural vintage of Decoy Napa Valley Red Wine made its debut, part of the Duckhorn Wine Company. Aromas of berry fruits with floral notes. On the palate ripe cherry and strawberry flavors with spicy cola notes, warm tannins with balanced acidity. Lingering crisp finish ending with earthy tones. Good value.

Scarlet violet glass with scarlet violet translucent rim. Pretty, light nose of cedar, blackberry, cherry, raspberry, earth and hints of tobacco and vanilla. Light body brings nice acidic tartness of cherry, strawberry and raspberry. Finishes medium long due to tiny tannins with an ending cedar/oak note. Good balance, structure and value at $19.99 USD. Easy recommendation for a tart sipper!

Tremendous Pinot, plenty of strong flavors for this balanced medium body. Spicy notes and subtle cherry flavor, along with a cedar filled bouquet. Very impressed for a 2012, hard vintage year for sure. I'm a big fan of the branding as well, classic but eye catching nonetheless.

On the palate ripe cherry and strawberry flavors with spicy cola notes, soft tannins with balanced acidity. Lingering crisp finish ending with earthy tones, a bit better than ‘15, which was great! Good value!

Great stand alone wine - awesome full flavor - smoky, mushroom (though I was the only one who smelled that), blood orange
