2013 Cabernet New Release – 91 Points
Our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is set to release any day now, and it has already garnered rave reviews! This vintage was rated 91 points by Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate saying, “This serious Cabernet Sauvignon showcases just how good Cabernet can be from Dry Creek” – wow! The Dry Creek Valley is an undiscovered gem, producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon in California. Primarily known for Zinfandel, our home appellation actually has nearly as many acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. Our region’s unique terroir provides just the right growing conditions.
Much of the Cabernet grown in our appellation is planted on sharply terraced hillside vineyards on the western slopes of the valley. The iron rich soils of the Dry Creek Valley are low in vigor and rocky, creating a stressed environment in which to grow grapes. A perfect microclimate with long days of vibrant sunshine and cool foggy evenings allows for exquisitely ripened Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Bright cherry fruit framed by floral and spice elements create a wine that speaks to the distinctive soil and growing conditions of our appellation.
