By on August 7, 2014

boomtown-by-dusted-valley-cabernet-sauvignon-bottle-nvWhile the price has creeped up since its launch in 2003, the quality under the cap remains rock-solid, thanks in part to Dusted Valley’s continued partnership with the Milbrandts and Wahluke Wine Co. This Cab continues to be imminently approachable, starting with the nose of dusty black cherry, black plums, cocoa powder and black pepper. There are sweet blackberry and cherry juice flavors on the entry, and the lighter tannin structure and boysenberry acidity make it a easy drink that’s capped by a pinch more of pepper.
