Duckhorn Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon

Since 1978, Duckhorn Vineyards has been exploring the character and complexity
of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Drawing on our winemaking team’s expertise
working with this varietal, Decoy Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon offers a rich
and appealing expression of the varietal crafted to be ready upon release.

2014 Harvest Notes
After getting off to a relatively early start, sunny skies and slightly above average
temperatures made for a very consistent and speedy Sonoma County harvest. Yields were just a touch above average, and the quality was excellent across all varietals. Our final pick of pristine, perfectly ripe fruit came into our new winemaking facility on October 17th. Overall, 2014 delivered the third phenomenal vintage in a row, with exceptional color and concentration, and delicious aromas and flavors.

Comments from the Winemaker
From its deep ruby and violet hue to its enticing fruit-forward aromas of blackberry,
currant and black cherry, this wine showcases what we love about great Sonoma
County Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate, the lush fruit is balanced by smooth,
rich tannins and lovely layers of spice, cocoa and hints of sweet and toasty French
