Winemaker's Notes

Clear skies and the cool dry influence of La Nina resulted in a long growing season and a late harvest for this vintage. Perfectly ripe grapes yielded a beautifully colored, complex Cabernet.

Rich ruby in color with dark cherry, black current, toffee and mocha notes. Silky tannins and good structure lead to a long and complex finish accented with vanilla notes.

Pair with brie, gruyere, Italian dishes, steak, ribs or chocolate.

I've just purchased my second case of this wine. I've poured it at big parties and small get-togethers and it's always a big hit with both novices and connoisseurs. The bottle is exquisitely done as well so it makes a nice bottle to bring as a gift. I have yet to find a better cab on for the price.

Look, for $10 I am not going to complain much at all. You definitely need to decant this cab, it is a little bit overwhelming straight out of the bottle. I guess it's my fault for getting such a young cab but I'm not going to cellar a $10 bottle. All this being said, it is still a decent wine to go with your dinner. This might sound odd, but enjoy the wine with a similarly bold flavored food, otherwise the wine will be overpowering

So, this Cab may not pack the bold punch of a Darioush or Jarvis but it has a lite complexity with subtle dark berry undertones. It is a great daily pour and is stored for the right amount of time could be on the A list! The bottle is very well crafted and presents nicely also. I sampled a couple bottles and proceeded to add a couple cases to my collection. Enjoy!

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
