Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet from the Dry Creek Valley is very good. It opens with a black currant bouquet with a hint of plum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry and mild minerlity blend with hints of oak and black currant. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely refined. I would pair this tasty Cab with a filet mignon in the near term. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The Endeavour Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the finest red wines we produce at Dry Creek Vineyard. This new vintage is simply stunning. At first swirl, the aromatics are enticing with high-toned, perfume aromas and a wonderful dark cherry complexity. Additional airing reveals nuanced spicy characters and dried floral notes typical to the Dry Creek Valley appellation. On the palate, elegant flavors of dark cherry, espresso, sweet vanilla and wet earth mingle with enticing rose petal, cranberry, blueberry, oregano and sage. The mouth filling complexity and completeness last from start to finish with smooth-textured tannins and a persistent lingering finish.
