Cabernet Sauvignon from Dyer Vineyards
At Dyer Straits Wine Co., we have a singular focus. As Napa Valley winemakers for over two decades, we have perfected a Cabernet Sauvignon Blend right at our own vineyard. With an ideal location in the Diamond Mountain District, we have the opportunity to cater to the excellent taste of our customers.
Located in Cabernet Country, our wine benefits from the volcanic deposits that encourage deep-rooted vines producing wines known for their concentration, intensity, and ageability. We handcraft the wine following long established, classical methods and produce about 400 cases a year, on average, which we prefer to sell directly to collectors. Our favored silky wine is available for purchase in boxes of three and is the perfect blend for an array of occasions or gifts.
We planted Dyer vineyard in 1993 in a site where volcanic gravel spreads over large boulders that slid from the ridge above thousands of years ago. The 2.3 acres of vines are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, 78% and two Bordeaux blending varieties; Cabernet Franc, 16% and Petit Verdot, 6% - a mix which we have refined over the years. Our farming methods are sustainable, we use only organic sprays to prevent mildew, and weed whackers instead of herbicide- we live here after all.
