Winemaker's 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

"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."
