2012 Dry Creek Vineyard “The Mariner,” Dry Creek Valley

A Bordeaux blend red wine. The opaque purple/crimson color leads to rich, expressive scents of leather, dark flowers, cranberries, blue fruit, and sweet herbs, all complemented by notes of roasted coffee beans. The wine is full in the mouth, showing fleshy dark fruit that picks up a licorice note. The smooth, fine-grained tannins make this a delight to enjoy now, and the overall balance promises a graceful aging curve of a decade or more.
