2003 Dyer -Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley; Vinfolio rating: 92 points

VINFOLIO REVIEW, Doug Wilder, April 28,2006 2003 Dyer-Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley; Vinfolio rating: 92 points. Bill and Dawnine Dyer previewed this wine at Premiere Napa Valley last year, and I thought it was one of the best there. Now, one year later, the wine is released, and it shows beautifully. It is their first departure from the tiny estate vineyard they own on Diamond Mountain. The quality is every bit the equal of their most recently released estate bottling. Full bodied structure with nice focus, plump cherry, dusty tannins in the nose. Elegant and focused on the palate. Drink: 2006-2010.

And a wonderful time was had by all at the Vintners’ Holiday at the historic Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite Valley offers wine tastings, seminars, and meals in one of the most beautiful settings in the world. In past lives, both of us attended this event and we were thrilled to be back with Dyer Cabernet.

Harvest at Dyer Vineyards... Finally!

Vintage 2005 - the Napa Valley experienced unseasonably warm weather in the early Spring. Temperatures of close to 80 degrees in late February and early March led to speculation of an early harvest. This was followed by a seemingly endless succession of cold rainstorms that have lasted throughout April and May and into June. It rained over 7” at Dyer Vineyard between May and the middle of June. The good news is that temperatures remained cool enough that mildew and botrytis (our two main fungal problems) did not take hold. Bloom was long and finished in the 2nd week of June. The weather remained slightly cooler than normal throughout August. Sept and October were perfect for ripening Cabernet- no heat spikes, no raisining, just perfectly even ripening. The crop was about average in the Diamond Mountain District and up about 15% in the valley. We think this may really be the vintage of the century!
