91pts James Suckling

A marriage of savory, stony elements with ripe, plummy fruit on the nose, leading to a palate that has a suave and succulent feel with fresh, velvety tannins, drenched in dark berry fruit. 96% merlot and 4% cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.

90pts Wilfred Wong

The 2017 Decoy Merlot drinks very nicely.  This wine is on point as an attractive, everyday red wine. Enjoy its perky red fruit aromas and flavors with lighter meat entrées. (Tasted: November 25, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

90pts Wine Enthusiast

This wine is soft, rounded and succulent in waves of plum and dark cherry. Moderate in weight and ripeness, it is solidly backed by integrated oak, baking spice and a lasting hint of dried herb.

 

Winemaker Notes

This lush and inviting Merlot displays layers of black cherry, blueberry, and cassis, underscored by vanilla and cocoa. On the palate, balanced acidity adds poise and elegance, while silky tannins carry the wine to a fruitful and concentrated finish.

Blend: 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon.
