The Estate

Since the inaugural vintage of our Decoy Napa Valley Red Wine almost a quarter century ago, Decoy has taken an important place in the Duckhorn Wine Company family of wines. With a reputation for delivering great quality at a remarkable price, Decoy has established a loyal following for its distinctive style, which emphasizes ready-upon-release wines that are capable of expressing their full charm and complexity in their youth. Building on this foundation, Decoy has evolved from being a single wine that supported the Duckhorn Vineyards brand to being a supporting brand for the entire Duckhorn Wine Company portfolio. Today, in addition to the Decoy Red, the Decoy lineup includes a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc—all of which are Sonoma County appellation-designated and highlight Decoy’s commitment to producing attractively priced wines made from exceptional vineyard sources.

Wine Making

To benefit from the diversity of Decoy’s great fruit sources, Dana and her team do as many as 150 individual fermentations each vintage with many lots as small as 5 tons. From there, hands on practices like open-top punch downs and lees stirring are applied.

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with beef, lamb, deer, venison, mature and hard cheese, and poultry.

"The 2018 Decoy "Blue Label" Limited Cabernet Sauvignon is on point as an excellent example of a well-made Napa Valley Cab. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers black fruits, licorice, and violets in its aromas and flavors. Pair it with thinly-sliced, grilled beef in a mix of red leaf, romaine, and butter lettuces."

"Combining mountain and valley floor fruit from the most acclaimed wine regions in Napa Valley, including Rutherford, Yountville, Atlas Peak, Stag’s Leap and St. Helena, this stunning Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, intricate and delicious. On the palate, classic flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, cassis, dark chocolate and violets are framed by silky tannins and a lovely underlying energy that draws the wine to a bright, juicy finish."
