User Reviews for 2-4-6 Dry Creek Valley Cab

Winemaker's Notes:

About This Wine: Dark attractive aromas offer hints of rich oak, currant, forest floor and creamy mocha. These qualities repeat on the palate, with blackberry, plum, cherry, cedar and a touch of cocoa joining in. A subtle mineral thread weaves through the wine, interlacing the flavors with the finely honed tannins and integrated oak. The smooth entry, a spicy yet juicy texture and overall balance delivers a Cab you’ll find hard to put down.<br/><br/> <strong>Jamie's (Peterson) Vintaged View Vineyard Notes:</strong> Te first and eagerly awaited vintage from our replanted Bradford Mountain Vineyard after removing the 20 year old, Phylloxera affected vines in December 2006.<br/><br/> Young vines are capable of producing some truly delicious and special wines, and the mountain vineyard in 2009 was no exception, but we felt that without the benefit of Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot to blend into the final assemblage, the wine was not quite in line with our Bradford Mountain Vineyard bottlings of past years. Hence we have continued our small-lots label Cabernet for one last vintage.<br/><br/> With ample acidity, balanced tannin, and moderate alcohol, this Cabernet should cellar well for 6-8 years and develop beautiful bottle bouquet to complement the fruit forward quality that makes it so delicious in it’s youth.<br/><br/> About Peterson Winery: We are located in the Dry Creek Valley, in the northwest region of Sonoma County. Peterson Winery’s new tasting room is now open for wine tasting and sales daily 11am-4:30pm. We often pour our wines at local tasting and charity events as well. Check for upcoming events on the News Events page.<br/><br/> Our wines are also available for tasting at the “LOCALS” tasting room in Geyserville. See tastelocalwines.com for directions and details. Click on the “Find Us” link for a map to the winery and to LOCALS in Geyserville.<br/><br/> If you have any questions about Peterson Winery or our wines, send us an e-mail at friends@petersonwinery.com and we’ll respond as soon as we can.<br/><br/> We can’t tell our whole story here, but we hope that by looking at a few photos and reading a bit more about us, you’ll find out who we are and why we love to make great wines.<br/><br/> About The Winemaker: <strong>Jamie Peterson</strong> - It's not by coincidence that I'm the winemaker at Peterson Winery. I've been helping my father at the winery for the past ten years, back to the days of labeling the bottles by hand. I worked two harvests here at the winery, in 2000 and 2001, and the 2001 harvests Down Under in Australia at Lowe Family Winery, and then in New Zealand, at Ngatarawa Winery. With this solid base of experience, much to my excitement I was given the opportunity of taking over winemaking duties in June 2002, and have been loving it ever since.<br/><br/> Overseeing the quality of the wine from when the grapes come in all the way through to the bottle is my main responsibility and priority. Since it’s just my father and I, this keeps me pretty busy, but when I’m not checking up on barrels or wrestling with the bottling equipment, you can often find me at one the numerous tasting events we attend, whether it is for charity or for the love of wine. In my free time, I’ve started a Peterson Winery softball team with my friends here in Healdsburg. I also enjoy cooking, foraging for local culinary mushrooms, reading, and am a Giants baseball fan. Continuing winemaking tradition of Zero Manipulation.<br/><br/> Technical Analysis: <strong>Varietal Breakdown:</strong> 90% Cabernet Sauvignon September 21; 5% Malbec - Bradford Mtn. Vnyd.
