Decoy 2010 Napa Valley Red Wine
Napa Valley, California

Every few years a new sub-appellation is carved out of Napa Valley. Duckhorn Wine Company's Decoy 2010 Napa Valley Red Wine includes grapes from eleven of the region's sixteen AVAs making it a rather representative blend. On the nose, it offers blackberry, blueberry and raspberry aromas with a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg. In the mouth, this Meritage offers fruity and woodsy flavors that allow it to pair well with venison and wild boar steaks.

Rating: 14/20
