Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The Dry Creek Valley is an undiscovered gem, producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon in California. Primarily known for Zinfandel, the valley has almost as much Cabernet Sauvignon planted. Our region’s unique terroir provides just the right growing conditions. A perfect microclimate, we are blessed with long days of vibrant sunshine and cool foggy evenings allowing for exquisitely ripened Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Bright cherry fruit framed by floral and spice elements create wines that speak to the distinctive soil and growing conditions in our appellation.
Nose: Displays lively aromatics of black cherry, blackcurrant, and dried blueberry. Additional airing reveals nuances of dried Herbes de Provence, cola, leather, and black olive.
Palate: The palate is full-bodied and rich with elegant flavors of black currant and dried cranberry with notes of cocoa powder, espresso, nutmeg, and cedar.
Finish: The wine is fruit-forward and youthful, with fine tannins and a finish of black and white pepper.
