    Winemaker Notes

    A lovely rich and elegant garnet color. A blend of cassis, current and the deepest darkest cherry on the nose. This middleweight wine delivers glide-from-your-shoulder silkiness. Cassis and bramble fruit with a hint of Mother Earth and sufficient cocoa to make it interesting.

    The Girls In The Vineyard, California

    Art+Farm founders, Rob & Kat McDonald have always done things their way. When Kat graduated from college and all her friends were getting jobs at McCann Erickson or Deloite, she packed a bag and moved to Australia. Upon returning to the US with her Australian husband, Rob, they set about importing Australian wine when most Americans didn’t know they produced wine in Australia. And not just any Australian wine. Old Bridge Cellars, their company, imported some of the most iconic wines from down under: D’Arenberg, Jasper Hill, Yarra Yering, Leeuwin Estate.

    After selling Old Bridge Cellars in 2003, Rob and Kat planted vineyards in Australia and Napa Valley and started on their next chapter, understanding what made great wines- great – from the soil up. Not being content with just farming, Rob & Kat founded Art+Farm in 2008. Their girls in the vineyard wines saw incredible flavor at a great value for day to day drinking.

    Rob was raised in the hills of Adelaide, South Australia. He was a Naval Officer, ran a pub, owned a bungee jumping company, loves to water ski and snowboard and has never been drunk under the table by anyone.

    Kat, grew up in New Orleans, has a law degree she will only use if forced and can use the f-word as multiple parts of speech in a 4 word sentence.  With their children, Rob & Kat call Napa Valley home.

    Located within the greater Clear Lake appellation, the Red Hills AVA is perhaps the hottest spot right now in Lake County for new Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards. Recognizing the potential of its volcanic and obsidian heavy soils, many respected growers are flocking to the area. Andy Beckstoffer, a leader in escalating the quality and recognition of Napa Valley, has already invested heavily in the area.

    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.
