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.

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, and poultry dishes.

"The 2019 Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon is ripe and smooth. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows pleasing aromas and flavors of warm blackberry pie and other bright fruits. Enjoy it with a grilled hamburger top with gruyere cheese."

Wine Enthusiast – 89

"Plenty of black fruit flavors and a firm structure give this wine a tasty and appetizing profile that will fit nicely with big proteins. Labeled “California” instead of Napa or Sonoma as in recent vintages, the wine offers rich black cherry and blackberry notes accented by subtle baking spices."
