External Reviews for Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. We like this wine's insistent black-cherry fruit, and we like its impressions of both vitality and fine depth, but it wanders a little too far to acidy stiffness as it crosses the palate and ends with a faint, close-to-subliminal sourness that winds up costing it higher ranking.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

Lots of rich, extracted blackberry, cherry and currant flavors in this wine, with nuances of sweet, smoky oak and considerable spices, especially toward the finish. The distinguishing feature is the tannins. They're dry and pretty astringent, although a well-marbled steak will rise to the challenge. - S.H.
