Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Dry Creek Valley is rightly famous for Zinfandel, but some very respectable Cabernet(and other Bordeaux varietals) grow here as well. Our 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the benchlands right here at Timber Crest Vineyard, about 500 yards east of the winery. The wine has an easy-going character typical of Dry Creek reds, while still showing classic Cabernet intensity. The aromatics are restrained at first, but open with time to black fruit and juniper berry. Flavors are in the dark fruit spectrum, with woodsy balsamic notes. The strong, persistent finish bodes well for bottle aging. Winning food pairings for this wine lean towards grilled red meats and braised greens.
