Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet from Dry Creek is ready to be consumed. It opens with a attractive ripe black cherry and black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very approachable. The flavor profile is a mild black currant with notes of black licorice and gentle oak. I also detected a hint of menthol and blackberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. This wine would pair well with a juicy Angus mushroom burger with Swiss. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Like our 2004 Cabernet, this wine is rich and dark, incorporating aromas and flavors of raspberry, ripe black cherry, and currant. There are hints of licorice and coffee. These flavors are combined with tannins that have been balanced and smoothed in both new French (70%) and American (30%) oak for 36 months. The wine is a blend of 97% Estate and Dry Creek Valley Cabernet, with 3% Syrah blended in to help achieve the desired texture and flavor. The wine is ready to drink now, or may be aged for the next 10 years. Like all our wines, it is not filtered or fined. We have also continued our practice of not using sulfur or pesticides in our vineyard.
