2016 Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
2016 Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon This impeccable Cabernet Sauvignon displays lively aromatics of black cherry, black currant and dried blueberry. Additional airing reveals nuances of dried Herbes de Provence, cola, leather and black olive. The palate is full-bodied and rich with elegant flavors of black currant and dried cranberry with notes of cocoa powder, espresso, nutmeg and cedar. The wine is fruit-forward and youthful, with fine tannins and a finish of black and white pepper.
94 Wine Enthusiast: Blended with 13% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot, this impressively balanced yet sleek red shows a tart currant tone, with a hint of blood orange. Grippy in tannin and oak, accents of dark chocolate and cinnamon round it out. Enjoy 2026–2031. Cellar Selection. —V.B.
