For the last 11 years, the Dry Creek Vineyard has been crafting a wonderful Cabernet to be exclusively served at the Screen Actors Guild awards.  This year, they have made the wine available in magnums, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on a couple. 

The Dry Creek Vineyard “SAG” Cabernet is from the 2008 vintage and boasts a beautiful dark purple color. It’s sourced 100% from the Dry Creek Valley appellation and is predominantly Cabernet.  The aromas lift from the glass and feature deep black fruits, framed with new leather, and slight roasted coffee. The palate bears the hallmarks of Classic Sonoma Cabernet;  sweet, ripe juicy blackberry fruit, minerals, licorice, and such a wonderful tactile sensation of powdery, dusty ripe tannins.  Balanced acids provide structure. This is delicious, wonderful Cabernet that lives up to Dry Creek Vineyards consistent standards of excellence.

Available directly from the winery in magnum only.  93 points.
