For Friends and Fellow Wine-Lovers,
Today we happily released our 6th Cabernet from Dry Creek to you... the 2016 Dry Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve.
Perfectly balanced. This marks the sixth vintage from Eifrig Cellars.
Yes, I made these wines with my own hands and, of course, with the help of some of the best winemakers in America. My DCV Cab from 2016 is first being made available to those folks who purchased from me before. This is sure to sell out too, like all the rest.
Today there are less than 200 cases so please don’t miss out…
This vintage we tried something unique... we married my love of old school Cabernet Sauvignon… something that reminded me of Napa winemaking in the 70's and 80's, with everything I love about French Bordeaux blends with Merlot in the mix. This is the kind of wine that competes with any wine at any price. Guaranteed.
It's also exactly the kind of wine I love to drink. Again, this is the first Eifrig Cabernet with Merlot added (although only a touch).
The provenance of the wine is the same: Dry Creek Valley.
The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes were grown in the DCV, on a small plot farmed by a good friend of mine – Jim Ricci. The wine was aged for 2 and a half years, in mostly new French oak (remember, the mix is a secret!). Finally, the wine is bottle-aged until the day you open it.
The wine is a dark purple, and more dense than the 2014. The clarity is brilliant, almost diamond like. The legs are incredibly complex and multiple layers and levels.
The wine tastes and swishes red and blue fruits with hints of cola and wet forest with baking spices. The after taste is gorgeous, and goes on and on and on. After an hour in my glass I sense caramelized cherries.
The prices are approxiamtely as follows:
- $115 per single bottle plus shipping
- $650 or less, depending on your state taxes, for a 6-bottle case (shipping included) and
- $1,200 or less, depending on your state taxes, for a 12-bottle case (shipping included)
We're happy to give discounts for those buying regularly...
Thanks for sharing in a dream, and here's to our health, wealth, and a great retirement,
