Our 6th vintage of Dry Creek Valley Cabernet. Gorgeous and probably our best yet. Dark purple, with inviting aromas of red and blue fruit. There are hints of forest, candied boysenberry, and whisps of citrus. The oak is once again restrained, balanced and deliciously sweet. There's a hint of fresh sawdust, and perhaps cedar and sandalwood tones that segue perfectly through fruit and acid flavors into the after taste which goes on and on for days. The mouthfeel is as elegant as I've had from any California Cabernet - reminsicent of the beautiful Napa 1986 and 2007 vintages. The tannins flow from beginning to end in my mouth: refined, polished, and almost unoticeable because of the balance between fruit, acids, and barrel oak. However, this is not for a lumberjack, unless on a date. The textures are fantastic... from mid palate until the end there's near perfection between creaminess, alcohol, cleanliness, and lip smackingness! Only made 192 cases so come and get it before I formerly release it to the list on October 1st.
