Decoy by Duckhorn 2012 Pinot Noir, Sonoma County
For years now Duckhorn Vineyards has produced a Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend under the Decoy label, and Duckhorn fans have been able to enjoy Duckhorn quality at a great price. Because Duckhorn has access to the best growers and the finest quality fruit in the region they've expanded the Decoy line to include varietal wines. This is their 2012 Pinot Noir that they've sourced from 16 different prime vineyards in Sonoma. Each lot was vinified separately and the wine was aged for 7 months in French oak barrels, 25% new. It shows distinctive Pinot character with notes of black cherry, strawberry, cranberry and cola on a beautifully balanced and vibrant framework. Hints of vanilla and spice linger on the finish. Duckhorn does it again!

    Comments about Decoy by Duckhorn 2012 Pinot Noir, Sonoma County:

    Lots to like about this one... very true Pinot character with cherry, black raspberry, strawberry, black pepper and smoke on the nose and palate. It feels pretty weighted for a Pinot, long finish too. Another winner for the Decoy label, reminded me of Goldeneye "light".

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Pizza and Pasta, Poultry
