Natalie's Score: 92/100
This Cabernet Sauvignon from California needs some cellar time; 10% Merlot was added to the blend, which gives soft plum and cherry flavours to the wine as well. If drinking now, decant for a couple of hours prior to serving with a slab of marbled steak done rare. A robust Californian Cabernet with firm tannins and structure. Aromas of cassis and black currant.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: veal chops, rosemary lamb, barbecued ribs in sauce, strong cheese.

Reviews and Ratings
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This Cabernet Sauvignon is from Sonoma Valley and has notes of lovely ripe fruit - raspberry, cherry and a subtle hint of vanilla. The palate is bursting with red fruit, mint, pepper, blackcurrant, smoke and oak - silky and elegant with a lingering red fruit finish.
|Pam Hatton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Deep berry with a fruit forward nose of blackberry and currant. Lively with medium tannins, easy and smooth. Balanced acidity with a medium long finish. Like all the Duckhorn wines, this one is delicious too.
|From Sonoma County, California, this robust mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with supporting roles from 9% Merlot, 1% Petite Sirah and 1% Petit Verdot is from the Duckhorn Wine Company. Decoy (2015) is blackcurrant and cassis one the nose with more blackcurrant, raspberry, olive and a touch of smoky vanilla and a touch of mint on the palate. This 2015 Cab Sauvignon has great structure and very firm tannins. Could benefit from five years cellaring and one to two hours of decanting. - Community Wine Reviews|
