Mission Codename The Juice is Loose
Welcome to our mid-week blowout special - on a very special wine.
Today’s Enos Vineyards 2013 Estate Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is dark, juicy, aromatic and incredibly delicious. This elegant wine is loaded with dark fruit, spice, and earthy goodness.
Quantity is limited and at this price, we expect to sell out.
We’re enamored with the wines of Daniel Fitzgerald, who perfected his craft at legendary California wineries Williams Selyem and Robert Sinskey Vineyards. Today’s wine is the best Cab that we’ve featured from this Wine Spies favorite winemaker.
Today’s wine is dark and richly layered on the nose, with blackberry preserve, sweet tobacco, hard leather, cocoa powder, cassis, chocolate covered cherry, spice box and a hint of cracked pepper.
On the palate, the wine is darkly juicy up front, with blackberry jam, black cherry, baking spice and red licorice with follow-on flavors of leather, cocoa powder, dusty bramble, toasty oak and vanilla, with subtle cracked pepper at the tail end.
Quantity is limited, so please reserve yours soon…
Here’s what the wine press has to say:
91 points - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast - “From a five-acre benchland vineyard, this elegant red is sharp with acidity and a full-sized tannic grip that softens in the glass. Oak-derived flavors blanket its black cherry fruit, with distinct leather and black pepper accents.”
