A blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
This well-structured Napa Valley Red Wine offers rich, mouth-filling fruit flavors, elegant balance and supple yet defined tannins. The bouquet displays enticing lavender, violet and rose petal floral notes, intertwined with menthol, black cherry, smoke and spice. On the palate, layers of red currant, plum, tobacco, black pepper and pencil lead surround a juicy core of brambly black fruit highlighted by blackberry and black cherry.
"Lovely and complex aromas of black cherry, currants and spice beguile the senses, leaving the impression of a much more expensive wine. The reality is this vintage of Decoy is one of the great values in Napa Valley red wine. A Bordeaux blend, the '06 Decoy is fresh and lively, with supple black and red fruits on the front of the palate, hints of dried herbs, woodsmoke and cigar box on the back end, and firm if somewhat leathery wood tannins." 90 points,
