Has wonderfully pure aromas of green apples, peaches, spice and smoky oak. Dynamite wine; concentrated and intense without being clumsy. Really focused and pure, with a long, rich finish.
Cabs from this appellation, no matter how ripe they are, always seem to have a brawny, briary edge to them, and this wine is no exception. The blackberries might have been picked in a dusty, thorny patch. Something about the acidy, tannic structure is appealing.
Pronounced blackberry and cedar-scented fruit is kept in check by sturdy but elegant tannins and a kiss of toasty oak in this balanced wine. It's round and supple, and very dry. The blackberry and black cherry flavors pick up again on the finish.
From this longtime Dry Creek producer comes an aromatic, flavorful wine, brimming with blackberry fruit, chocolate and herbs. It's very rich, with soft but complex tannins and a real bite of acidity. A year or two of age will round it out and make it better.
If you like classic Dry Creek Cabs, you’ll love this ripe, pleasing wine. It has aromas of blackberries, cinnamon, cocoa and herbs. It’s the up-front fruit flavors that really make you sit up and take notice--they’re ripe and zingy. Not a complex ager, so drink soon.
Dry Creek Chards ask for a certain indulgence. They’re never opulent or over the top, and have rather earthy flavors that bring to mind sweet, cured tobacco. This wine, which is a fine example, features winemaker interventions, like lees and oak, and finishes with some tannins. If you’re adventurous, try aging it.
An interesting wine with an array of citrus, peach and tart pineapple flavors, very high acidity, and a super-long finish. It tingles on the palate, and is refreshing and ultra-clean. Has some complexity, and is a natural for food.
