Dry Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Product description

The Dry Creek Valley is an undiscovered gem, producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon in California. Primarily known for Zinfandel, the valley has almost as much Cabernet Sauvignon planted. This lush and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon initially displays aromas of plum, cranberry, and black truffle, followed by nutmeg, black pepper, and thyme. A first taste of the full-bodied wine reveals flavors of black cherry, black currant, and espresso. Hints of florals and fine leather bolster its richness, while firm tannins provide structure. The broad palate and soft edges make this Cabernet approachable in its youth while also perfect for aging.

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast

This smooth, broad and spicy wine is difficult to resist for its easy drinkability and tempting, complex clove, tobacco and cedar notes on top of ample black cherries. Light to moderate tannins are well integrated in a medium to full body.

91 Points - Wilfred Wong

The 2019 Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is finely focused and exhibits tell-tale nuances of the Dry Creek Valley AVA. This wine excels with aromas and flavors of red currants and mineral notes. Pair it with fresh mint-accented, grilled lamb chops.
