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.
My new every night Red
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.
