2009 The Dreaming Tree Cabernet Sauvignon, North Coast

“The Dreaming Tree” is the name of a Dave Matthews Band song, and now it’s a wine brand as well, crafted by Sonoma County winemaking legend Steve Reeder, whose resumé includes stints with Chateau St. Jean, Simi and Kendall-Jackson. In joining forces, Matthews and Reeder sought to make high-quality wine available to the masses, which accounts for the reasonable MSRP. The wine? There’s a sharp note in the nose, but it blows off quickly. In the mouth, the wine shows off impressions of black cherry, red licorice and raspberry. The finish is smooth, just like a DMB jam.
MSRP: $14.99 (October 2011)
Wine Lines rating: 88

    Oh cool! I didn’t realise that anyone had reviewed this yet! Have to let RW know, he’s been looking for a review of it for a while ( http://www.regularwino.com/articles/dave-matthews-launches-dreaming-tree-wine/ ) apparently you can’t get this in the UK!

      I would love to take a wine class how fun! Reds are my favorite; shariz or pinot noir might be tops now, but it really depends on the bottle. I’ve also had some really nice blends I think I need to keep a wine diary! Recently we discovered Tinto de Verano, which you make by combining equal parts Spanish wine with lemonade & a lemon slice. Absolutely lovely!
