Wine Review: This dark ruby colored red blend opens with a mild black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty black cherry with hints of vanilla oak and menthol. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger nicely. This wine would pair well with beef bourguignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This vintage of our Decoy Napa Valley Red Wine offers enticing aromatics, sweet red fruit, supple tannins and firm, integrated oak. Beginning with aromas of raspberry, cherry pie, spice and cedar, the blend showcases an array of elements, from flavorful layers of cranberry, red currant and cassis to more nuanced hints of orange peel, amaretto and coffee. The medley of fruit continues throughout a long, enjoyable finish.
