So exciting to see another accolade for our Estate 1856 Wines and recognition of our mission to grow great Cabernet Sauvignon in Dry Creek Valley…we believe our four clones of Cabernet plus special selections of Petit Verdot and Malbec create wines of great varietal character and intensity…cheers to our 2012 Duvall’s Prospect Bordeaux Blend!!
How cool to make the number one wine (all sourced from Tzabaco Rancho Vineyards) on a new list of “10 MUST-TRY CULT WINES” from Karina Calayag of Exquise Magazine!
1. 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Barrel Reserve, Dry Creek Valley, $42. Estate 1856
Tempting aromas of dark fruit merge with expressions of fine-grained oak. The velvety texture reveals rich layers of dark cherry, wild plum, blackberry, and mocha with a touch of spicy cedar and mineral essence. Elegant and stylish, with supple yet firm tannins and refined layers of oak notes, this Cabernet graces the palate with the finesse of a wine that deserves to be slowly sipped and savored as it lingers on the palate
