Wow, nice score.
After considering it a bit more, I'm thinking that the price changes are mostly due to a restructuring of brands over at Duckhorn. IIRC, the Decoy label is new within the past 2 years, I don't recall seeing it until maybe a year ago. Perhaps the brands are being setup as Decoy ($20-30), Migration ($30-40) and Goldeneye ($50-60); whereas a few years back there was no Decoy and both Migration and Goldeneye sat in the same $30-40 range. I'm talking retail prices in my area.
Oh, and the Goldeneye vineyard has a very pleasant and civilized wine tasting. I recommend it.
