Winemaker Notes

The DARE Cabernet Sauvignon emits concentrated aromas of ripe black cherry, dark currant, cassis, tobacco and cedar notes with faint hints of caramel. On the midpalate, the vibrant tannins and well-integrated oak flavors give the impression that the wine is lightly dancing over one's taste buds. Firm tannins grace the finish. This wine is to be enjoyed young or cellared for 3 to 5 years time from vintage.

Critical Acclaim

WS 89
Wine Spectator

Complex, tight and focused, displaying dried currant and spicy berry notes, with hints of nutmeg, sage and herbs. The long, focused, lingering, firmly tannic finish bodes well for short-term cellaring. Best from 2009 through 2014. 2,000 cases made.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked...

View More

The [Napa Valley] and [Cabernet Sauvignon] are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
