 Floral and fresh, this light-bodied wine bursts with snappy grapefruit aromas that are followed by bright lemon and raspberry flavors. It's superbly balanced, crisp and appetizing—an elegant version of pink lemonade, without all the sugar. *Editors' Choice* (JG)  (9/2017)

Sometimes it's difficult to know which rosé to choose, with so many wonderful options, both domestic and Provençal. The Decoy California Rosé is such a delight, at an optimal price point, and it delivers, big time. The blend is unconventional, at fifty-eight percent Syrah and forty-two percent Pinot Noir, and the wine is expressive of this originality. Pale in color, the wine exhibits aromas of diatomaceous earth, light raspberry and boysenberry. The palate is mineral-driven and light, with deliciously balanced acidity and quite a bit of backbone, which makes it equally suited for cuisine or personal enjoyment.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
