Elegantly structured and impeccably balanced, this gorgeous Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon displays voluptuous dark fruit aromas of blackberry and black cherry, with hints of lavender and rustic savory spice. The rich berry notes are echoed on the palate, where silky, fine-grained tannins and enlivening acidity carry the flavors to a lush, lingering finish. Aged in French oak barrels for 14 months; 40% new oak.
2019 brought another exceptional vintage to Napa Valley, resulting in wines with alluring polish and poise. The season began with a wet winter followed by a mild spring. While this led to a slightly later-than-normal start to the season, ideal summer weather with no significant heat spikes ensured ideal flavor development, yielding complex and vibrant whites, and refined reds with elegant tannins, enticing aromatics and beautiful fruit flavors.
