Seduce, a Cabernet Sauvignon from a very warm Sonoma micro-climate expressing power hidden deep behind elegance.
Start with thirty years of learning about wine and food then add another thirty years of experience in the vineyards and winery and at the end we have Seduce Cabernet Sauvignon.
Seduce presents in a svelte, pure, beguiling fashion with rich and deep fruit aromas. The palate has a similarly pure character with a silky composition and an elegant style. Pure fruit with rising tannin in the midpalate with a hint of “dry creek dust” in the center. Seduce is structured but with a deep, individual character. The tannin is exquisitely integrated and there is a great harmony throughout.
Decant for one hour or more. Tasting temperature: 65°F
I was speechless . . . . "What's wrong?" she repeated . . . "Wrong? There's nothing wrong - It's just like Bordeaux - It's perfect!" I said climbing out of the car . . .
This excerpt from the book Way Beyond Wine was written by Bill Williamson about finding Dry Creek Valley which is ideally situated for growing quality wine grapes. The valley is classified as a Region II climate for grape growing, similar to the famous Bordeaux region in France.
Dawn and Bill did buy a property and plant Cabernet Sauvignon in a specific site with a hot micro-climate, important for ripening this varietal. This planting became the origin of Seduce Cabernet Sauvignon.
It was the early days. Seduce was our first Cabernet Sauvignon. Dawn entered Seduce in major wine competitions each year from 2005 through 2007. Each panel of professional judges awarded Seduce the gold medal. Seduce doesn't have anything more to prove!
Seduce ~ to lead by persuasion to physical action.
