Decoy by Duckhorn Merlot 2017
This lush and inviting Merlot displays layers of black cherry, blueberry, and cassis, underscored by vanilla and cocoa. On the palate, balanced acidity adds poise and elegance, while silky tannins carry the wine to a fruitful and concentrated finish.
Blend: 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon.
|Wine Enthusiast: 90|
|This wine is soft, rounded and succulent in waves of plum and dark cherry. Moderate in weight and ripeness, it is solidly backed by integrated oak, baking spice and a lasting hint of dried herb.|
|James Suckling: 91|
|A marriage of savory, stony elements with ripe, plummy fruit on the nose, leading to a palate that has a suave and succulent feel with fresh, velvety tannins, drenched in dark berry fruit. 96% merlot and 4% cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.|
