Production

This wine is sourced from vineyards in the northern part of California’s Central Valley. The region around Lodi and Manteca enjoys significant influence from San Joaquin and Sacramento river deltas, which act as a natural cooling system to the often-searing heat. The effect is to provide freshness to the ripe, fruit charged Cabernet grapes. Individual Cabernet blocks are vinified separately and then blended to produce a wine which reflects the right balance between fruit and structure. The wine then spends 6 months in oak to provide a broad frame for this rich wine.

Tasting notes

Ripe blackcurrant and wild berry fruit on the nose complimented sweet vanilla oak. Rich cassis and black cherry fruit on the palate with a soft, juicy, yet long finish. Framed by the subtle American oak.

Food match

Almost any red meat, especially served rare, is going to do the trick.
