Replica Just Right Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Replica is committed to protecting our natural environment and supports the fight against colony collapse due to human activity - all while making wine of exceptional quality. Through replication of the natural winemaking and farming practices of the past, we are able to craft naturally sophisticated wines with classic, fruit-forward California flavor profiles. We are taking the steps needed to change the modern farming industry by crafting only the purest, natural wines without the use of harmful pesticides (like neonicotinoids) or additives.
We believe that wine should taste the way that Mother Nature intended - without any human interference. Replica aims to bottle only the flavors found in nature through the natural expression of fruit - allowing us to produce only wine in its purest form.

Covering the most vine acreage in the state compared to any other red wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon produces as much wine in California as Merlot and Pinot noir combined. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates, as well as the freedom of its winemakers, allow for an incredible range of wine styles from this single grape.
California’s most famous region—and especially for Cabernet Sauvignon—is the acclaimed Napa Valley. While Cabernet is successful throughout the world, rarely has it achieved such merit as it does from the Napa Valley. At this point the two are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other.
Napa’s closest neighbor, Sonoma County, does an impressive job keeping up with Napa’s fame and glory. Alexander Valley, Sonoma Mountain, Moon Mountain and Knights Valley contribute to the lot of some of California’s top-rated Cabernet Sauvignon.
Lake County in California’s North Coast has become a focus for some of Napa’s more respected growers. From the Central Coast come iconic examples of classic California Cabernet; Lodi and the Sierra Foothills are great budget-friendly sources of amicable Cabernets.
