Decoy Sonoma County Merlot 2016 Review

Don't listen to Miles from Sideways, that was over a decade ago and wasn't true then and isn't true now. This wine is what we love about Merlot in Cali. A true expression of New World Merlot and at just the right alcohol level. This is one of the most affordable examples from the golden state with notes of raspberry and ripe strawberries saturated in plum and wrapped up in a lush vanilla layer with wafting notes of cedar and a touch of nutmeg.
