Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot
Tasting notes: This Cabernet Sauvignon initially displays lively aromatics of black cherry, black currant, and dried cranberry. Additional airing reveals nuances of dried flowers, nutmeg, white pepper, and cedar. The palate is full-bodied and rich with elegant flavors of ripe raspberry, black currant, and fresh boysenberry with notes of cocoa powder, bay leaf, sage, and sweet pipe tobacco. The wine is complex and youthful, with bright fruit characters and vibrant spice.
About the winery: Dry Creek Vineyard was the first new winery established in the Dry Creek Valley after Prohibition. It was David Stare's vision to plant Sauvignon Blanc that firmly cemented the winery's legacy as one of California's most important wineries.
