Duckhorn’s “Decoy” Pinot Noir highlights a distinctly plush and approachable expression crafted from Sonoma County fruit.
In 2015, a warm, dry spring resulted in early budbreak and an extended flowering period followed by one of the region’s earliest harvests in the past decade. The berries were small and exceptionally healthy, offering great concentration, elegance and dark fruit flavours. The wine spent eight months in French oak, 75% new, before bottling.
From its enticing bouquet to its layers of lush, pure fruit, this wine captures the vibrant charm of great cool-climate Sonoma Pinot. On the nose, cherry, strawberry and cassis with hints of violet. The palate is soft and silky, with supple tannins accentuating the ripe berry flavours and a bright, focused finish.
