Tasting notes: This vintage presents enticing aromatics of boysenberry, cranberry, and plum with hints of coriander, cardamom, and dark chocolate. On the palate, brambly flavors of blackberry and black cherry come forward. The wine is complex, with bright acidity complimented by deeper notes of cumin, black pepper, and white pepper. The tannins are silky and smooth to lend a round, rich mouthfeel.
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.
