Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Dry Creek Valley Reserve

Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Dry Creek Valley Reserve

My 7th vintage of Dry Creek Valley Cabernet is gorgeous and could be 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 are hints of fresh sawdust, cedar, and sandalwood that segues perfectly to fruit and acid flavors. The after taste goes on for days. The mouthfeel is as elegant as I've had from any California Cabernet - reminsicent of the old world styles of Napa in 1986 and the more modern 2007 vintages. The tannins flow from beginning to end: refined, polished, and almost unoticeable because of the balance between fruit, acids, earthiness, and barrel oak. Is it blue fruit or red fruit? The textures are fantastic from mid palate on... there's near perfection between creaminess, alcohol, cleanliness, and lip smackingness! Made just 213 cases
