Wine Review: This slightly opaque and very dark ruby colored Cabernet opens with a boysenberry and blackberry bouquet with a hint of eucalyptus. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a chalky plum with hints of blackberry and cocao. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins are sticky and linger for quite some time. This is very typical of this vintage. The panel suggested pairing this Cab with juicy Kobe sliders. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our 2008 Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep rich color. Aromas of black cherries, fig, and plum are underlined by layered nuances of sage and cocoa. Beautifully balanced with firm tannins and piquant acidity, it greets the palate with sweet plum, cocoa powder, coffee bean, and exotic spices. Look for an exquisitely lingering finish.
