Winemaker Notes

Deep purple in color, the Outlot Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich nose filled with black currant, cherry, fennel, cola, and licorice. Full bodied with a plush tannin entry, the palate has abundant red cherry fruit, mission fig, pepper rose and savory spice that carries through to a medium-firm finish.

Wine Enthusiast
Stainless-steel fermented, this is a red that's ready to drink, blended with small amounts of Syrah and Pinot Noir. Thick, leathery, structured black fruit stars alongside dried herb and earth before a long, juicy finish.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Offering excellent richness from start to finish, the appealing 2014 Outlot Cabernet Sauvignon graces the palate with ripe red fruit flavors and smooth textures. Pair with roast chicken over a bed of arugula. (Tasted: August 31, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Outlot, Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California

Outlot wines are a tribute to Sonoma’s rich agricultural heritage. Outlot by definition, is a piece of land situated outside a town or city limits. Outlot, to us, is the special area just outside Healdsburg, fondly known to locals as the “Magnolia Peninsula”. Bordered to the west by Dry Creek, the east by Foss Creek, and the south by the Russian River, this area has a long and rich history filled with stories of great ranches and exclusive resorts. Famous for its rich soil, as much as 24-feet deep in some areas, nurseries and orchards thrived here from the late 1800s, ultimately giving way to the vineyards that are abundant in the area today.

Had it not been for the dedicated farmers who live in the area, this rich farming land and heritage may not exist today. Threatened by development in the early 1970s, outraged farmers fought to protect the land in a decade long battle – the “battle for Healdsburg’s Magnolia Peninsula”. With this wine, we celebrate the area and honor those that fought to ensure the Magnolia Peninsula would remain as it was back in the late 1800s, a rich farmland where vines and orchards thrive. It is living history in the modern era.

Nearly a northern extension of Napa Valley, Alexander Valley starts just north of the small, Knights Valley, and is just a few minutes drive from the Napa town of Calistoga. It is Sonoma County’s hottest AVA. But the Russian River, which runs through the valley, creates cooler pockets and its soft, alluvial soil is ideal for grape growing, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, some believe that Alexander Valley Cabernets truly rival the best from Napa Valley and many of the heavy-hitter producers have largely invested here.

In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up over 50% of plantings, Merlot and old vine Zinfandel thrive here. Ample, fleshy Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate white wine production. Some old-vine plantings of Grenache have also been discovered and more recent experiments with Sangiovese and Barbera show great promise.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region and forms the base of the Medoc reds, which are typically mostly Cabernet with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. (Enjoying a great deal of success in various regions around the world, this blend is now globally referred to as a Bordeaux Blend.) Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy 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 is typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California Washington, Argentina, Chile 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 profiling revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
