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 ripe berry fruits with tea and herb notes. 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!

Very nice Pinot. Deep ruby color with slightly orange edge, medium body. Nice ripe strawberries the nose, also raspberries and cherries in liquor with mint tones, also lots of American oak that not necessarily make it better. On the mouth is quite rich for a Pinot, good permanence and great acidity. Awesome for a wine tasting.

Delightful, smooth, delicate hints of wild cherries perfect match with Mrs A’s lasagna. The Decoy label is a welcome addition to the Duckhorn product offering at a attractive price point and will not disappoint. Cheers 🇺🇸🍷

I really enjoyed this wine! Very flavorful! But classic Pinot Noir! With an extra burst of ripe Plum black cherry hint of vanilla. Tastes like a little bit of American Oak possibly. Light on gases medium acidity. Little bit of vanilla baking spices. But overall a great California flavor burster . on point
