Decoy California Zinfandel 2019
"The 2019 Duckhorn Decoy Zinfandel is as pale a Zin as Iíve seen but warmly inviting with that inimitable Decoy freshness of fruit. With an added dash of Petite Sirah, thereís pepper and spice on the nose and, above all, oodles of raspberry jam. And it doesnít disappoint in the mouth either, being as succulent as can be, with additional touches of vanilla and chocolate. Mrs Ray has always said she didnít like Zinfandel; well she blooming loves this and there was quite a tussle over the bottle as we neared its end."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
A beautifully lush and engaging Zinfandel, this wine begins with aromas of blueberry, blackberry, black pepper, cherry, plum and licorice. The generous fruit continues on the palate, where the flavors are framed by silky smooth tannins and bright acidity, with subtle hints of oak-inspired vanilla, nutmeg and spice lingering on the finish.
