Dry Creek Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 375ml 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
This impeccable Cabernet Sauvignon initially displays lively aromatics of black cherry, black currant and dried cranberry. Additional airing reveals nuances of dried flowers, nutmeg, white pepper and cedar. The palate is full-bodied and rich with elegant flavors of ripe raspberry, black currant and fresh boysenberry with notes of cocoa powder, bay leaf, sage and sweet pipe tobacco. The wine is complex and youthful, with bright fruit characters and vibrant spice. It offers intensity and richness and reflects the terroir of Dry Creek Valley beautifully.
This is a greatly approachable and well-made wine, blended with small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Smoky, perfumed oak leads to a juicy center of black currant, black cherry, cedar and dried herb, finishing on supple tannins.
Lively raspberry and cherry notes, with modest toast accents, make this an easygoing crowd-pleaser. Drink now. 16,642 cases made.
