    Winemaker Notes

    The grapes for this fruit-forward California Cabernet come from Monterey and Paso Robles, two highly regarded wine growing regions. The majority of the wine was aged for over a year in French and American Oak to add layers of complexity and to mellow the tannins. Our winemaking team blended small amounts of complimentary varietals, including Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah to create a wine boasting rich aromas and flavors.

    Festival'34, Central Coast, California
    2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
    The name...

    In the fall of 1934, California's wine country celebrated its first harvest following the repeal of Prohibition. Wineries reopened their doors and merrymakers came from far and wide to celebrate at this momentous event dubbed 'Festival '34'. It is with that gracious spirit and sense of celebration we commemorate with Festival '34 wines.

    The wine for Festival '34 was primarily sourced from vineyards in Monterey, Paso Robles and Santa Barbara. The Reds were sourced from the warmer regions of Monterey and Paso while the Chardonnay was sourced from the Maritime influenced Santa Barbara.

    In general, the Central Coast is a cooler wine growing region than Sonoma or Napa because the hills in the Central Coast are positioned East to West while the hills in Napa and Sonoma are positioned North to South. The East to West positioning allows the fog to drift in from the Ocean, cooling off the summer heat allowing for a longer growing period. This allows the wines to fully develop on the vine and increases the acidity, making the wine more food-friendly.

    Central Coast

    View all wine

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley. Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types, and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

    Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    View all wine

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

    In the Glass

    High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

    Sommelier Secrets

    Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
