Dynamite Cabernet Sauvignon remains true to the style of previous vintages, even as the vineyard sources have narrowed to the new Red Hills AVA within the North Coast appellation. The wine is round and full-flavored, immensely fruit-driven and true to the varietal. Delicious when young, it has the potential for greater complexity with bottle aging. This wine is made almost exclusively from mountain-grown fruit with smaller clusters and berries, and as such, is very concentrated and intense. Lush aromas of dark fruit such as blackberry, currant and plum are complemented by notes of dark chocolate and espresso. The full palate shows sweet fine-grained tannins from the mountain vineyards.
Wine maker notes
The grapes for our Cabernet Sauvignon come primarily from the Red Hills appellation in Lake County. Characterized by the red volcanic soils of the Mayacamas mountain range, this area is ideal for red varietals. The well-drained, nutrient-poor soils benefit the fruit by naturally moderating the crop load and producing intense, concentrated flavors. The rolling hills give each block a unique orientation and a range of flavors and harvest dates. At 2,000 to 2,500 feet, these vineyards are among the highest on the North Coast, resulting in large diurnal temperature swings that ripen the red grapes fully while maintaining fruit intensity and balanced acidity.

Producer
With its name inspired by the method that workers used to create the original vineyard site on the rocky slopes of the Sonoma Valley, Dynamite Vineyards captured the public’s imagination when its 1991 vintage was released. Offering full-flavored character, an approachable style and unbeatable value, the wines were soon winning awards and fans.
