Similarly, James Suckling awards this Decoy Cabernet 93 points, highlighting its full-bodied profile with crisp acidity and finely grained tannins, as well as its intricate layers of cassis, brambles, violets, and nuanced hints of graphite, cigar box, and tobacco leaves.

    The Decoy Cabernet price reflects not just the wine itself but the legacy and craftsmanship it represents. Each sip of this Decoy Cabernet wine is a journey through the rich terroir of Alexander Valley and the meticulous care that goes into every stage of its creation. The Decoy Limited Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine that promises to evolve, gaining complexity and grace with time. As suggested by Wilfred Wong, who awarded this vintage 91 points, the Decoy Cab Sauv showcases a compelling array of savory spices, dried earthy tones, and blackcurrants, making it an ideal companion for a sumptuous, well-marbled ribeye.

    Critical Acclaim

    Wine Enthusiast
    So concentrated and deep, this massively structured wine performs above its price range. Saturated with blackberries, black currants, espresso and dark chocolate flavors, it is firmly wrapped in a thick layer of tannin. Delicious now, it will become more complex and drinkable with time. Best from 2028–2040.
    JS 93
    James Suckling
    Cassis, brambles and violets followed by graphite, cigar box and tobacco leaves with blanched nuts and cedar. Full-bodied with crisp acidity and firm yet finely grained tannins. Wonderful concentration and focus. Precisely framed wine with depth and length. Aged for 14 months in 40% new French oak. A blend of 98% cabernet sauvignon and 2% merlot. Try after 2027.
