The Dreaming Tree Crush North Coast 2012
"The North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon continues the legacy of The Dreaming Tree’s inaugural 2009 vintage, with elegant and supple fruit flavors. Each of the North Coast’s renowned winegrowing regions brings unique fruit character and structure—including herbs and blackberry flavors from Sonoma County, cherries and spicy notes from Mendocino County, and earth tones and mouth- filling tannins from Lake County." -Winery
External Reviews for The Dreaming Tree Crush North Coast
Winemaking:The wines were aged in oak for 18 months and then carefully blended to bring out the true character of the varietal.Tasting Notes:Classic aromas of blackberry, cherry, and dry herb notes are wrapped by toasted vanilla and soft, mouth-filling tannins. Its elegant and supple.Food Pairing:A fun start or end to any meal or gathering. Also enjoyed with grilled rack of lamb or richlentil salad.2012 Vintage:The 2012 growing season saw moderate temperatures with above-average sunlight exposure on the North Coast. Weather conditions during bloom promoted a strong set and larger-than-average crop. Given this large crop and moderate temperatures, it took a long time for the fruit to ripen, resulting in flavor development racing ahead of sugarsideal for flavorful, well-balanced wines. The late rain at the end of the harvest urged us to move quickly on picking the remainder of the fruit. Overall, the wines from the 2012 vintage show excellent color extraction, intense varietal aromatics, and great concentration. By all accounts, it was a very strong vintage for wine quality. - WineryVarieties: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon15% Merlot2% Cabernet FrancAging: 18 months in oakTotal Acidity: 6.1g/LpH: 3.63RS: 3.8g/LAlcohol: 13.85%
When singer-songwriter Dave Matthews wanted to create his own wine he went to a very reliable source. Veteran winemaker Steve Reeder knows his way around the vineyards of California's North Coast like few others, having made wine for Kendall-Jackson, Chateau St. Jean and now Simi Vineyards, he was the ideal partner. Dave and Steve's Dreaming Tree Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot 5% Cabernet Franc and a few other gems aged 18 months in oak. With a focus on minimal environmental impact, the grapes are sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards using no pesticides. The label is made from recycled paper, the bottles are lightweight (1/4 pound less than standard) and the corks come from sustainably grown trees. The wine meanwhile, shows abundant fruit with notes of cherry, blackberry, anise and vanilla. It's soft and with a lush texture that makes it great match for everyday foods.
A blend of the North Coast's nest varieties, this wine pulls you in with a floral berry noteand then jumps up with a raspberry jam.
