2008 Dry Creek Valley
Winery Price $50
Our Price $12.99
We had no idea that we would be running into so many incredible deals these past few weeks! In some instances they came out of no where and others because of our great relationships within the industry.
No matter, the result has been some rockin deals that could not be passed up.
This offer came to us last week from a winery in the Dry Creek Valley called Arbor Crest. Anyone know this property?
We are guessing most will say no as none of us here recognized it.
Name recognition really does not mean a lot around here, as it's what's inside the bottle that truly counts.
This wine is from the 2008 vintage, celebrating its 10th Birthday this year.
It should feel pretty good about turning 10 as the wine is drinking beautifully. Certainly showing signs of aging gracefully as the tannins are super soft and the acidity has mellowed considerably. The nose is showing off leather, spice and earth components found in a wine with 10 years of age underneath it. The fruit is very forward, with dark plum and raspberry leading the way. There are also hints of baking spice and subtle cocoa notes on the finish.
The blend is 49% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Malbec coming from all Estate grown fruit. Oh yeah, one more thing its $50 at the winery!
Where are you going to find a 10 year old wine stored perfectly at this quality for under $13? Only answer is at the SDWBC!! Come and get it!
See you soon!
