Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir opens with a fragrant black raspberry and boysenberry bouquet with a hint of spice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty acai berry with notes of mild oak and black cherry. There are hints of vanilla-cola and flinty minerality in the aftertaste. The finish is dry and its flavors and fine tannins drift away nicely. This Pinot is very approachable and food friendly. I would pair it with authentic German schnitzel (Schweineschnitzel). Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Crafted using grapes from some of the most acclaimed vineyards on the cool, windswept Sonoma Coast, this alluring wine is the ultimate expression of Decoy Pinot Noir. It combines silky sophistication with a bright cool-climate energy. On the palate, soaring flavors of blackberry, red currant, cherry, cedar and sweet baking spices glide to a long, vibrant finish.
