Wine Review: This red blend from Decoy opens with a black cherry and black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile was initially quite tight, but it opened up with some aeration. The flavor profile is a mild mineral influenced red plum with notes of gentle oak and hints of black currant and black licorice. The finish is dry and its flavors and fine tannins fade away nicely. While this wine is not overly complex, it is quite friendly and versatile once it develops. I would pair it with your favorite juicy burger off the grill. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our pinnacle red blend, this bold and luxurious wine combines the finest Napa Valley Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo to create an alluring and complex wine. On the palate, velvety tannins accentuate the generous fruit, with gorgeous flavors of black raspberry, cherry, cassis, briary spice and sweet French oak lingering on the long, delectable finish.
