Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2009 vintage has yielded a broad and inviting expression of our Decoy Red Wine, with classic Napa Valley fruit notes and a silky, mouthcoating mid-palate. The aromas spotlight layers of mocha, mulberry and cassis with a subtle, yet sophisticated hint of cigar box. On the palate, this wine is soft and appealing with abundant flavors of blackcurrant, plum, hazelnut and licorice.

This Decoy Napa Valley Red Wine is a fine example of an American Bordeaux blend. I would recommend decanting it for 20 or 30 minutes to give it a chance to fully open up. On the nose there are layers of plum, black currant, blueberries and other dark fruits. There is also an earthy quality with scents of cigar box and vanilla. The oak is well integrated and there is also a pleasant tartness to the wine. Overall I would say this is a very masculine and sophisticated bottle of wine. Everything from the artwork on the label to the winemaker’s touch indicates a strong Y-chromosome influence. This is an excellent value wine and would make a great gift for a man. Food Pairing Suggestions: What can you say about a well balanced wine like this Decoy Bordeaux blend? It’s an old school style of wine, so let’s pair it with some old school home cooking like pot roast. It just calls out for meat and veggies. Try roasted lamb or pork or a roast beef sandwich. Just avoid poultry and plain white meats and you’ll be fine.

Decent but not worth the price. On the fruiter side, rather simply.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
