The Comet is one of our biggest wines—structured almost like a Cabernet Sauvignon—perfect for pairing with grilled meats, savory stews, or holiday meals. It has a substantial core of Petite Sirah, which gives it a blue-black color and a beautiful fruit-filled midpalate, with hints of bright fruit from the added Carignane. It appeals to lovers of big, rich, mouth-filling wines.
From the Lilly Hill vineyard, the steep slopes and rocky soils help these vines produce grapes that are concentrated and complex. Harvested a month later, the grapes they maintain their acidity, resulting in a focused and crisp dessert wine.
The Reserve version of our classic Dry Creek Zinfandel is made by hand selecting individual barrels of our best lots to make this special blend. Selected for intensity, complexity & balance, this is consistently one of the finest wines made at Dashe Cellars!
This beautifully structured wine with great acidity is balanced with complex fruit. The aromas of blackberry and cassis show off the true characteristics of cabernet sauvignon while the pomegranate, plum, and earthen flavors demonstrate what is possible with a cooler-climate vineyard. This Bordeaux-style Cabernet is Dashe Cellars through and through.
A complex and luscious Petite Sirah, this wine is jet-black in color, with intense aromas of blackberry, plum and black pepper, while the palate finds cassis and blackberry fruit balanced with loads of fruit and peppery spice. Will easily improve over 10 years and last for 25 years or more.
