    "On the palate, the juicy, bright fruit flavors are framed by rich, refined tannins that carry the wine to a satisfying finish." ~ Winery

    This Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon has legs and lots more. It's made by Duckhorn and all the expertise they bring to the table, but at a much gentler price. It's got lovely medium body, loads of flavor and beautiful tannins that make it a wine to open every night of the week. Cheers winelovers!

    Winery:  "Displaying the lushness and balance that define great Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon, this inviting wine features layers of blackberry and black cherry, along with notes of mocha, star anise and spearmint.  On the palate, the juicy, bright fruit flavors are framed by rich, refined tannins that carry the wine to a satisfying finish.

    The 2016 growing season began with generous winter rains, followed by a spring and summer marked by moderate temperatures and abundant sunshine. Like several recent vintages, the 2016 harvest came early, delivering exquisite quality grapes. After the modest size crop of 2015, 2016 saw a welcome return to average yields. Overall, the 2016 whites show an ideal combination of lovely richness and excellent natural acidity, while the reds are lush and complex, with beautiful color and concentration."
