REVIEWS

"Red fruit driven, lots of acid from the Sacramento delta’s cooler evenings. Bruised red plum, dragon fruit, red licorice, fruit leather of black cherry. Loads of old vine fruit here showcases the region's growing history. Drink now and often at this easy going price. Fantastic daily drinker." - 91 Insider Points

From the excellent 2017 vintage comes this balanced Cabernet of dark brick color, and lifted aromatics of rich berries. Fine tannins lead to a lush tactile sensation of bright fruit and eucalyptus, including trademark-style Lodi chocolate. The eucalyptus lingers on a long finish. This wine is a true celebration of fruit. The hot, dry Lodi summers allow Cabernet to ripen completely creating an explosion of fruit on the palate.

TASTING NOTES 

Color: dark brick, star bright

Aroma: forward aromatics that range from raspberry to blackberry

Flavor: good integration of aromatics to flavor. Raspberry, black cherry, blackberry and eucalyptus, delivered with just a light touch of oak. A mouth filling palette rides on smooth, refined tannins. Also a touch of Lodi-specific chocolate. Finishes long, clear and bright.
