Duckhorn Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 750ml

Duckhorn Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon

In the nose, rich dark fruit aromas are underscored by enticing oak-inspired notes of caramel, mocha and baking spices. These elements continue on the palate, which spotlights a rich core of blackberry and French plum flavors.

Since the inaugural vintage of our Decoy Napa Valley Red Wine more than 20 years ago, Decoy has taken an important place in the Duckhorn Wine Company family of wines. With a reputation for delivering great quality at a remarkable price, Decoy has established a loyal following for its distinctive style, which emphasizes ready-upon-release wines that are capable of expressing their full charm and complexity in their youth.

Due to a wet spring and mild growing season the 2010 harvest started 2 weeks later than we would normally expect. Later, milder seasons tend to result in wines of fine elegance and balanced natural acidity. This is exactly what we see in our white wines and the best reds from superior locations. During harvest the conditions (a strong heat wave and then significant late rains), caused us to be very diligent in the vineyards fine tuning the fruit and making timely picking decisions. In the winery we took precautions to be respectful to the characteristics of the fruit and feel that has resulted in wines of character and intrigue.
