Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon captures the attitude of Mendocino County's style. Aromas of black currant and cherry are followed by rich flavors of cassis, toasted vanilla bean, and hints of chocolate. Enjoy this rich dry red wine with hearty chicken dishes, beef and lamb, and red sauced pasta. About the Blend:
With Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon echoing in the cellar, our winemaker crafted this custom Cabernet Sauvignon from premium Mendocino County fruit, blending a one-of -a-kind wine with Rock 'n Roll mythology. To capture the intense, brooding character of The Dark Side of the Moon, Winemaker Mark Beaman turned to a classic wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon. A varietal with a deep, complex character that takes a relaxed environment to fully appreciate, Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the hauntingly dense, timeless character of Pink Floyd's masterpiece album.
