Dry Creek The Mariner

Details

Beginning with the 2004 vintage, we proudly introduced an exciting new proprietary blend to our lineup of wines. Called “The Mariner,” this wine was the culmination of years spent working with different vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley, including our own estate DCV9 property. Now in its fourth vintage, the Mariner represents our vision to produce the finest Meritage wine using the five noble Bordeaux varieties. The 2009 vintage began with heavy rains in November and December. However, by February, Mother Nature had turned off the rain spigot. Several consecutive weeks of frost in March were followed by heavy winds in mid-April, with fires consuming the area in late June. And while, not the most ideal conditions, our winemaking team was able to manage this very tricky vintage to produce outstanding wines. This wine displays wonderful aromatics of polished red fruit, mocha and spice. The nose translates to an elegant and seamless experience on the palate with a core of juicy black fruit, chocolate, black plums, cassis, black and red cherry, black tea, vanilla and spice. The tannins are smooth and polished framing the wonderful structure and balance in the wine. Some additional minutes in the glass reveal the enchanting aspects of the Dry Creek Valley appellation including dried spices, bright floras and an earthy dusty quality.
