The best of Sonoma Cabernet

2006 Dry Creek Vineyard Endeavour Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon $55

Earthy on the nose with plenty of nuanced elements coming together. Licorice, fresh leather, a bit of tomato leaf and hints of mint all accent the big rich, soft black fruit aromas. On the palate this is big and rich, though it does show a very pure expression of the grape. It’s full of black cherry fruit that’s not sweet or overtly fruity, but rather dry and well framed with herbal and earthy details. There’s a ton of power here and the richness shows on the long finish, which has a touch of heat and is dark and rugged but not rough. The oak is well judged here and through on the finish but the fruit wins out in the end. This deserves several years in the cellar to reach its full potential, but it delivers a lot today. 93pts
