Wine Review: This ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Decoy opens with a red currant bouquet with hints of eucalyptus, anise and red plum. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, slightly acidic, round and juicy. The flavor profile is a pleasant blend of plum and black currant blend with notes of cocoa and anise spice. I also detected some hints of oak, boysenberry and fine grained minerality in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a little while. This Cab is food friendly and versatile. We would pair it with braised short ribs with mashed potatoes or with a slow cooked bottom round roast beef on an open-faced sourdough thick sliced of bread. Enjoy – Ken & Joe

Winemaker Notes: Combining mountain and valley floor fruit from the most acclaimed wine regions in Napa Valley, including Rutherford, Yountville, Atlas Peak, Stag’s Leap and St. Helena, this stunning Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, intricate and delicious. On the palate, classic flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, cassis, dark chocolate and violets are framed by silky tannins and a lovely underlying energy that draws the wine to a bright, juicy finish.
