Tasting Notes

Perfect for summer BBQ season; its ruby red color foreshadows its intense flavors of ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit, with a hint of clove and black cardamom. Rich mouth feel and great balance. An excellent wine to pair with food, it’s fantastic with all kinds of grilled or smoked meats.

Vineyard Notes

The fruit from this flavorful and beautiful Cabernet blend came from a small estate located in Linden and in the Lodi wine appellation. The Linden and Lodi lay at the Sierra foothills, which have soils with substantial amounts of fist-size rocks, the result of gold mining from the previous century. These rocks are heat-retentive and assist in the ripening process. They’re reminiscent of the Chateauneauf du Pape in France’s Rhone Valley.
