Editorial Reviews for Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
A nice blend of smoke, pickle barrel, vanilla and sweet fruit with a bit of background cocoa, dirt and herbs. A bit simple with sweet wood and dark cherry fruit on the palate, good acids and well measured tannins. Turns a bit blocky and stiff on the backend with a lovely hint of bitter cocoa that cut through the sweetness and leads to a moderatly long finish with a bit of spicy and mineral. Really fine bottle of wine at this price. 87pts
A nice freshness on the nose with a hint of spice leads to a smooth creamy wine -- oak and blackberries, sour cherry, a bit of medicine, some cola, black pepper and a drying, medicinal, resinous coffee finish.
This wine won a gold medal at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair in September 2008 and the Reserve Championship at the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Competition announced November 2008. There's not much available and what's left will go fast. It's great.
Not too shabby. The flavor is compact but elegant. A little too lackluster to amaze me, but certainly seems like a well-crafted wine.
Not impressed. I keep putting the glass down instead of keeping my nose stuck in it as I tend to do with wines I like. It's not bad, just a bit bland. The nose is pleasant with some sweet spice notes, but the palate is flat. Good tannins though.
Hot nose of plums and baked fruits. Rounded with medium acidity. Very fruity - rich, deep fruits burst out. Great value for the price - you get a lot of wine (fruit mainly, but some structure) for the money.
(Review of December 2009.) Superlative Napa Cabernet whose rich fruit and approachable texture make it delicious now, but whose beautiful balance and structure and grip suggest it will be good for years to come. Lots going on in this wine, from the deep, classic dark currant/cherry fruit to the chocolate, roasted herbs, coffee, and spice underneath the surface. I've been impressed with all the Davis Family wines I've tried, but this is my pick of the litter so far.
I must give this wine a solid four. It was really enjoyable. Great purple color and fruity nose. I purchased this wine at PF Chang's. Very nice.
External Reviews for Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
Our exclusive Vineyard-Designate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Dry Creek Valley. The beauty of this valley is apparent; the lush vineyards that extend from the valley floor to the hills signal the real charisma of the region with its precise blend of climate, soil and exposure that produces remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon. The Dry Creek Valley is approximately 16 miles long and only 2 miles wide at its widest point. It was created by uplift and subsidence along ancient earthquake faults, accompanied by the deposit of alluvial material. While coastal cooling occurs in the late afternoon during the summer, fog rarely enters the valley until after nightfall, providing the long hours of sunshine needed to bring the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to full maturity. Climate records also show that the average nighttime low temperature in the Dry Creek Valley during the growing season is lower than that in either the Alexander Valley or upper Russian River Valley. These cool evening temperatures enable our Cabernet Sauvignon to mature more slowly and also preserve the natural acidity that gives this wine balance. This wine is redolent with aromas and flavors of cassis, molasses and toasty oak with layers of cedar, tar and Brazilian coffee bean. A tightly focused mid-palate of red currant and velvety firm tannins leads to a very alluring finish. Well-balanced and drinkable now, this wine's true beauty will be revealed with additional cellar aging.
