Threw some filet mignon on the grill and paired it with this beast.This wine goes really well with medium-well and up. the crispy outside of the steak balances out the tannins. Definitely decant this for an hour or so before dinner. you won't regret it!

The 2008 Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon displays elegant aromas of raspberry, sage and dried flowers. On the palate, the flavors intermingle with black cherry and chocolate creating a mouthful of silky, well-integrated tannins. With some airing, the wine fleshes out even more providing dimension, depth and length. The finish lingers on for more than a minute with fine tannins that are very elegant and structured. Simply delicious! - WineryBLEND: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet FrancAPPELLATION: Dry Creek ValleyHARVEST DATES: September 15 - October 3, 2008ALCOHOL: 14.4%BRIX Average: 23.9FERMENTATION: 17 days; pumped over twice dailyPH: 3.76TA: 0.55BARREL AGING: 20 months in French, American and Hungarian oak; 35% new oakSOILS: Mainly hillside fruit with both eastern and western facing sun exposureVINE AGE: 15 - 20 years on averageYIELDS: 3-4 tons per acre ** SOLD OUT **
