Decoy Limited Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2021

93 pts. James Suckling:

"Red plums, red currants, and lavender followed by dried herbs, wild bush and roasted coffee beans with toasty notes. Medium-bodied, refreshing acidity, juicy silky tannins. Lively and energetic yet balanced and refined. Aged for 20 months in 40% new French oak. Drink or hold."

This Pinot just may be the best-kept secret deal in the wine world! The Decoy "Limited" wines are a higher-end version of the Decoy line, but the nice people at Duckhorn keep the price low! The Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir really surprised us - rich red fruit up front, followed by cedar with a lively spiciness and a very long finish. For a Sonoma Coast Pinot this good, this wine is a screaming deal! – Wine Factor

FROM THE WINERY

Crafted using grapes from some of the most acclaimed vineyards on the cool, windswept Sonoma Coast, this alluring wine is the ultimate expression of Decoy Pinot Noir, combining silky sophistication with soaring flavors of blackberry, cassis, cedar and spice.

VINTAGE NOTES

With just 50% of our average rainfall to start the season we took proactive measures in our vineyards, including early suckering and pruning, careful cover crop management and targeted irrigation to ensure healthy vines. Spring and summer brought mild-to-warm temperatures that allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, resulting in early flavor development at lower Brix with high acidity. To achieve balanced acids with even more flavor development we waited patiently until September 1st to begin our Chardonnay harvest and completed our last Pinot Noir pick on October 2nd. The resulting wines offer ideal ripeness, supple textures and beautifully concentrated flavors.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Bright, polished and impeccably balanced, this wine embodies the depth and nuance of the finest Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs. The nose offers a melange of black raspberry, Bing cherry, rhubarb and forest floor aromas, along with hints of holiday spice. On the palate, velvety tannins carry the lush, flowing flavors to a vibrant fruit and spice finish.
