2009 The Mariner

The Mariner was launched with the 2004 vintage. This new Meritage wine is an expression of several distinctive hillside Dry Creek Valley vineyards incorporating our finest Cabernet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot lots. A wine greater than the sum of its collective parts, this blend is supple, rich and sophisticated from start to finish.

The 2009 Mariner presents enticing aromas with deep vibrant hues of attractive red fruits. Aromas are dominated by cassis and dark cherry, toasted vanilla oak, hints of crème brulée and notes of espresso. On the palate, the flavors are harmonious and supple with blackberry and sweet black cherry combining with a toasty complexity. The tannins are fine and grainy, lending excellent structure to this wine. The finish is long and lingering with a charming flavor profile that entices one for another sip.
