Wine Review: This opaque and dark purple colored Cabernet opens with a shy black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine has a crowd pleasing mouthfeel. It is medium bodied, smooth, and silky. The flavor profile is a gentle black cherry and black raspberry blend with a hint of oak. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins linger for a while. This wine would pair well with Theresa's meatloaf. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2007 Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is classic Dry Creek Valley Cabernet. At first swirl, deep aromas of raspberry, sage and dried floral elements come forward. On the palate, these aromas combine with black cherry and chocolate creating a mouthful of silky, well-integrated tannins. With some airing, the wine fleshes out even more providing dimension, depth and length. The finish lingers on for more than a minute with fine tannins that are very elegant and structured. Truly a blockbuster wine from an incredible vintage!
