2011 Cabernet Sauvignon


Only 200 cases produced

We carefully select the blocks that go into our Cabernet, ensuring the grapes are at perfect ripeness to produce this full-bodied, opulent wine.

Tempting aromas of ripe dark berries mingle with traces of forest floor, smoky oak and spice notes. The smooth entry and mouthfeel reveal a core of blackberry and dark cherry. Layered among the fruit you’ll discover a dusting of dark cocoa, creamy oak and hints of leather, eucalyptus and cedar, with dried herbs joining in the finish.

Drinkable now, this Cab will pair well with a hearty meal or an appetizer course of baked Brie en croute, stuffed sausage cups or bacon-wrapped stuffed dates. Also try it with a medium-rare New York strip, venison stew or grilled duck breasts drizzled with a blackberry reduction.

Vineyard and Winemaking Notes

The 2011 vintage provided winegrowers with many challenges, but we were lucky to get excellent fruit off our Home Ranch vineyard, located in the heart of Dry Creek Valley. The vines are located near the foothills on the eastern side of the Dry Creek bench. The elevated terrain and well-drained rocky, clay loam stresses the vines just enough to limit yields and create small concentrated berries.

These small Cabernet Sauvignon grape clusters—resembling blueberries in size and color—create intense wine with concentrated, delicious flavors and a solid structure.

​Aging for 10 months in French oak barrels, followed by over two years of bottle aging, allows the flavors and structure to marry and mellow. The result is a smooth, rich, food-friendly wine to share with family and friends.
