Since the inaugural vintage of Decoy Napa Valley red more than 20 years ago, Decoy has taken an important place in the Duckhorn Wine Company. With a reputation for delivering great quality at a reasonable price, Decoy has established a loyal following for its distinctive style, which emphasizes ready-upon-release wines that express their full charm and complexity in youth. Decoy Sonoma County Merlot is a lush and inviting wine highlighting the elegance of the Merlot variety. The grapes are sourced from the Dry Creek, Alexander, Knights and Sonoma Valleys. Lovely aromas of strawberry compote, plum and cherry wood are supported by hints of clove and cinnamon from the well-integrated oak. The red fruit continues on the palate, with layers of fresh strawberry and raspberry. Decoy Merlot is made of approximately 85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc.

Wine EnthusiastThis straightforward wine delivers a lot of flavor for the price. The juicy, rounded layering of dark cherry, dried herb and cedar works within a light-bodied, mellowed context of balanced acidity and fruit.

Wine SpectatorSolidly built if slight in scale, with savory flavors of red currant, dusty dried herb and spice. Drink now through 2021. 40,000 cases made.
