Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Decoy Sonoma County Merlot 2013. Dark berries, smoky bacon, cedar and spice on the nose and palate. This plush and tasty easy-going Sonoma Merlot is ready to be enjoyed now and over the next five years. Tasted October 2016. 90+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
This is a succulent Merlot from Duckhorn Winery. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
