2003 Dyer Cabernet Sauvignon - limited availability

2003 Dyer Cabernet Sauvignon - limited availability

"offers a pretty nose of spice, verbena, lavendaer and blackberry with a gorgeous palate entry of licorice, currant and mocha.  Excellent balance. 93 points.  Drink 2013 -2019."  Tasted 5/4/13 DW

 

 

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.

While predictions for an early harvest seemed verified by start up dates for sparkling wine and Sauvignon Blanc, we may be closer to normal for hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
