2016 Decoy Sonoma County Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., $25. Aged 8 months in French oak barrels, 30% new and 60% neutral. · Light ruby red color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with aromas of red cherry, cranberry relish, rose petal and sandalwood. Light in weight, even delicate, with gentle tannins and a red-fruited theme enlivened with crisp acidity. The wine doesn’t lean too heavily on oak like many inexpensive Pinot Noirs but the fruit is very shallow. Score: 87. Reviewed March 17, 2018
