The origins of Decoy are deeper, having been planted more than 30 years ago by iconic vintners Dan and Margaret Duckhorn. Duckhorn Portfolio crafts its wine to the most exemplary standards from vine to bottle, utilizing grapes from great vineyards, including their estate estates. The 2019 growing season in California delivered picture-perfect growing conditions. Following a cool, wet winter and spring, the summertime provided ideally moderate weather, allowing the grapes to blossom their flavors to their full potential. Warm weather throughout the harvest ensured excellent ripeness, resulting in vibrant whites with lovely intensity and depth and luscious and savory reds with precious strength and rich colors.
