2006 Dyer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
With aromas of cassis, blackberries, and black cherries underscored with lavender, tobacco and a hint of graphite, the 2006 Dyer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful example of our Diamond Mountain fruit honed and polished to perfection. Immediately accessible on the palate with concentrated dark fruit supported by a classic minerality and supple, muscular tannins.
Against the backdrop of a challenging growing season, we employed all of our combined years of winemaking experience and intimate knowledge of the vineyard to craft 369 cases of superb wine. Always in the restrained, balanced style of winemaking that cultivates the unique characteristics of our Diamond Mountain vineyard. The vineyard is planted to 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot. These varieties are proportionally represented in the wine.
