Special for the Holidays

 

2005 Dyer Cabernet Sauvignon - Library Release

 

Early in 2013 we had a chance to taste thru 15 vintages of Dyer Vineyard- what was exciting to us was the way the core characteristics (dark chocolate, black cherry, anise) of the vineyard came through while the vintage differences were pronounced- and all of them were still very much alive!  It made for a range of wines that guided us thru the years.

One of our favorites from that tasting was the 2005 vintage Dyer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.  At 9 years of age, this wine still has the concentrations and depth of flavor that it showed in it’s youth now combined with a savory mocha note and tannins that have softened with time.  If you’re looking for something a little special to put on the table over the holidays this might just be it!  

Notes on 2005 Dyer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (tasted Nov 2014)
•    Deep garnet color
•    Berry compote and reds currents with a plummy spice, dried cranberries, and a hint of olive tapenade.  
•    Fresh earthy-woodsy notes of forest floor and wild mushrooms- complex and savory.
•    Resolved tannins kept firm with a balance acid.   Lingering silkiness on the palate.
•    Perfect with duck, game birds, beef and lamb.

Blend:
•    83 % Cabernet Sauvignon
•    11 % Cabernet Franc
•    6 % Petit Verdot

Alcohol: 14.6%
pH: 3.61
