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. The 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.
This lush and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon initially displays aromas of black cherry, nutmeg, and cedar, followed by mushroom, dried sage, and underlying floral notes. A first taste of the full-bodied wine reveals flavors of cranberry, fine leather, and espresso. A hint of dried herbs and minerality bolster its richness, while firm tannins provide structure. The broad palate and soft edges make this Cabernet approachable in its youth while also perfect for aging.
