Winemaker's Notes:

Endeavour represents Dry Creek's finest expression of the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal. Produced exclusively from their sustainably farmed estate vineyards, this powerful wine shows just how good Cabernet can be from the Dry Creek Valley. At first swirl, this wine presents rich, savory characters of blackberries and cassis. On the palate, mouthcoating Cabernet flavors are framed by silky smooth tannins that are succulent and refined. The finish is long and lingering repeating the power packed flavors that make this wine so memorable.

Blend: 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot

About Dry Creek Vineyard:

In 1972, when David S. Stare opened the doors to Dry Creek Vineyard, it was the first new winery to be built in the Valley since Prohibition. Dry Creek created the first Sonoma Fume Blanc, originated the Dry Creek Valley AVA, and was an early advocate for Bordeaux-style blending.

Today, Dry Creek Vineyard is committed to vineyard diversity, vinifying individual lots of fruit separately, and then blending carefully for each final cuvee. Dry Creek Vineyard is also a leader in the stewardship of pre-Prohibition Zinfandel vines and vineyards, and has isolated a clone, called the "Heritage Clone," which is bottled separately from their "Old Vines" Zinfandel (containing wine only from vines no younger than 50 years old), and which has made very promising wines.
