Cabernet Sauvignon
 
Collier Falls

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Dry Creek Valley - Collier Falls Vineyards
The wine is deep, dark red in color with aromas of blackberry, cinnamon and clove. This elegant, balanced and spice driven Cabernet has a very approachable palate with distinct notes of red currant and vanilla. We recommend 20-30 minutes of decanting to fully showcase its soft flavors and lingering finish of red fruit.

Dashe Cellars

2010 Cabernet Sauvignon - Alexander Valley - Dashe Cellars
A great Cabernet Sauvignon from the wonderful Todd Brothers ranch vineyard. This is very fruit-forward with blackberry and cassis aromas, licorice, and chocolate. Rich, full bodied, and yet restrained more like a wine made in Bordeaux than one made in California I think Anne had something to do with that! Beautiful now, but can also age well.

The 2010 vintage was a cool ripening year, and produced tiny amounts of fruit. The vines, as is typical for this vineyard, produced a tiny crop of Cabernet Sauvignon, only about one and a half tons per acre which translated into only 92 cases of wine. The grapes were crushed into our smallest fermentation tank (1500 gallons) and allowed to slowly ferment using only the yeast present on the skin of the grapes. This native fermentation allows the characteristics of the vineyard shine through the resulting wine.

During fermentation the temperature was allowed to get above 90 F, to aid in the extraction of color and flavor. We let the wine stay on the fermented skins for an extended time to extract the maximum flavor and color, after which we pressed the grapes in a gentle membrane press so as not to extract dry or harsh tannins.

The wine was aged for over 30 months in 100% French oak barrels, with about 20% of the wine aged in new oak. In our blending trials, we blended Petit Verdot with the Cabernet, for spice and length of finish. A big, balanced, substantial wine, we believe that this Cabernet Sauvignon will be quite a long-lived, able to age 15 years or more.

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby in color and has varietal aromas of black fruit and herbs with integrated smoky oak aromas. It is also full bodied, forward and rich with medium and full tannins with a long finish. The wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels of which 60% were new and thin staved, and 40% 1-2 year old barrels. This wine shows a lot of promise for long term aging.

Collier Falls

2001 Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5 Litre (Magnum), Dry Creek Valley - Collier Falls Vineyards

An elegant style wine with intense deep red color... the bouquet blends hints of cassis, fresh tobacco leaves, cacao and blackberries. The mouth is long and soft with opulent flavors of dark cherries, roasted coffee and chocolate. This is a rich and silky wine with balance, complexity and structure. Firm tannins give the wine potential for aging, but it is pretty even now. — Cécile Lemerle—Derbes, Winemaker Available only on www.collierfalls.com
