When we tasted the Dry Creek Mariner, we were more than impressed by the ample fruit, round mouth feel, and balanced tannin and oak character. A blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cab Franc.


WE 92 Pts.  -  WS 91 Pts. -  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.


Blend: 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc

According to the Wine Enthusiast:  Dry Creek's Mariner bottling is a wine that, in good vintages, rises to greatness. The 2008 does just that. It impresses for its dryness, richness, classic structure and intricate flavors of blackberries, black currants and herbs.


According to the Wine Spectator: Shows the benefit of bottle age, with a mature edge to the gravelly texture, offering dried berry, currant, cedar and tobacco notes. Maintains its focus and gains depth and nuance on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2024. Rated 90+
