Duckhorn Vineyards Decoy Sonoma County Red Blend 2012, California


My Rating 87 Points. 
Price $20.

Dark ruby in color with a red rim and medium intensity.

The Nose is more of the secondary flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, coffee, tobacco, blackberries, blueberries, wood, oak, white pepper and metals.

Medium to full bodied with a big mouthfeel and fat legs.

Dry and fruity Palate with blackberries, blueberries, figs, sweet cherries, black currents, vanilla, coffee, cedar and black pepper.

Long finish with spices and ripe, grippy tannins.

Nice blend for fruit lovers. Some complexity too. Nice by itself or with a big steak.

a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
