Dry Creek's estate Endeavour Vineyard is located in the Lytton Springs area of the Dry Creek Valley. Endeavour is the vision of the second generation to grow and produce Cabernet Sauvignon that equals the finest of any Cabernet Sauvignon in California. Strategically planted to take advantage of each of the different soil expressions on the property, the Endeavour Vineyard is also sustainably farmed. A labor of love, Endeavour will continue to drive the family winery forward in our effort to produce world-class wines.
Year in and year out, the estate Endeavour vineyard provides fruit that rivals the best vineyards anywhere in California. The combination of soil, sun and geography yields a wine with distinct aromatic elegance and classic Dry Creek Valley flavors. At first swirl, this wine presents some of the cooler vintage characteristics of 2010. Bright red cherry, dried spices, florals and black tea nuances fill the glass. On the palate, the wine is silky and smooth with layers of fruit. Plums, blackberry, cassis and juicy red cherry characters are framed by a solid tannin structure. Additional sips reveal underlying nuances of earth, minerals and green tea. This is certainly a wine with the structure and depth to age 15 years or more.
