We were amazed to find out that Dutcher Crossing is only 7 weeks old (that would explain the Cabs being so young!!). But the winery itself is great with a huge tasting room, fantastic views of neighboring hills and vineyards and a beautiful picnic area. Also the service is very good and the staff very friendly. I wasn't mad about the wines but the views from the back of the tasting room and the picnic area make it a great place to visit.

2008 Costello Vineyard Chardonnay ($28)Rating: C

Much better. Nice light, crisp chardonnay with great flavors. Actually tasted more like a Sauvignon Blanc
2008 Stuhlmuller Vineyard Chardonnay ($34)Rating: C

Another very nice Chardonnay and a much fuller wine with a bigger finish. Won a lot of awards
2003 Maple Zinfandel ($30)Rating: B-C

The Zin had a very strange smell - We thought that perhaps this was from the glasses. Sue said it smelt "like old dish towels", and it was Shane's favourite wine at the winery (if you can get past the smell). It had a lot of berry flavors, was smooth and had a great finish

"Smells of strawberry jam". I really enjoyed this Zin. Good fruit, nice finish. Nice wine

Good fruit and finish, drinking well out of the bottle. A nice everyday Cab
2002 Taylor Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($38)Rating: B

Great color and smell. I was expecting this to be great but was disappointed. It was young, medium bodied with not much of a finish
2002 Cabernet Sauvignon ($28)Rating: A-B

Great color. Not much after that though. I found it too fruity - perhaps it will get better over time but was definitely too young.
2009 Sauvignon Blanc ($22)Rating: A-B

I definitely was not mad about the 2009 Sauvignon Blanc and ended up tossing it out. Not for me
