The 2011 Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, composed 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc sourced from the Dry Creek Valley and aged in French, American and Hungarian oak (30% new) for 18 months; has seductive aromas of eucalyptus, red currant, black cherry and vanilla on the nose and blackberry, black cherry, vanilla and oak on the palate. It is a medium to full bodied, extra-dry/dry, fruity to integrated wine; with refreshing acidity, grippy tannins and a long, oaky finish. This is a sipping wine; drink now and for the next 5+ years (cork enclosure). My impression: NICE, 89 pts. Tasted in Oct/14 at 'Tasted at Discover Sonoma County event ' http://grapeselections.com/sonoma-wines-2014/.
