2003 Dyer Cabernet Sauvignon - limited availability
Tasting Notes on Release: "sleek, restrained and focused. Aromas of black cherry and licorice with a seductive vanilla note. Lean and structured on the palate with supple tannins."
Vintage Notes: The 2003 growing season, somewhat unusual for Napa Valley, began early with an exceptionally warm March followed by the wettest April on record. A long cool summer allowed fruit flavors to develop ahead of sugar accumulation. Temperatures were cool enough in September to effectively stall development and it wasn't until a burst of warmth in October that fruit fully matured. We harvested on October 22th.
This release totals 420 cases, including magnums.
