    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine displays wonderful aromatics of polished red fruit, mocha and spice. The nose translates to an elegant and seamless experience on the palate with a core of juicy black fruit, chocolate, black plums, cassis, black and red cherry, black tea, vanilla and spice. The tannins are smooth and polished framing the wonderful structure and balance in the wine. Some additional minutes in the glass reveal the enchanting aspects of the Dry Creek Valley appellation including dried spices, bright floras and an earthy dusty quality.

    Blend: 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dry Creek's Mariner bottling is a wine that, in good vintages, rises to greatness. The 2008 does just that. It impresses for its dryness, richness, classic structure and intricate flavors of blackberries, black currants and herbs.

    Shows the benefit of bottle age, with a mature edge to the gravelly texture, offering dried berry, currant, cedar and tobacco notes. Maintains its focus and gains depth and nuance on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2024.
