Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Decoy opens with a mild black cherry and faint oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and approachable. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black cherry with hints of old oak, plum, chocolate, and coffee. The finish is dry and its mild tannins fade away. This Cab is very approachable and will be liked by many. Drink now and pair it with your favorite burger. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 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 oak.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
