Decoy Merlot 2018
Wine Enthusiast: Designated Editor's Choice. "This is a French oak-aged, plush and approachable red made from a handful of Sonoma County appellations. Leather, earth, clove and toasted oak accent a core of black cherry, cranberry and plum, with a lasting note of chocolate on the finish." Mar 2021

This lush and inviting Merlot displays enticing aromas of blueberry, raspberry and cassis, underscored by a French oak-inspired hint of cocoa.
