$85.00

Hands Down a Medal Winner 

Bottling 125 cases June 2020. Ships Nov – Dec 2020

This is a beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon, with a classic hint of bell pepper that has been barrel aged to perfection.  It is very complex with a nice subtle smokiness and is smooth and thick with flavors of cassis and dried currant. It makes your mouth salivate wanting to break it down; beginning with a full mouth feel right down the middle of your tongue. The dark black cherry color is captivating and challenges your imagination. Big bold well balanced tannins are balanced with a nice longer finish.

Cabernet wines  typically pair well with marbled red meat. Pair this Cab with a nice med rare filet, rib eye or rack of lamb or with a wood fired pizza or a Wagyu beef hamburger. This is a unique Cab by itself,  and will take you to the next level when paired properly

The unique terrior  makes our wines complex and unique

Epic Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are  grown in a private vineyard close to Georgetown CA at approximately 2600 foot Elevation in El Dorado County.  We age in American Oak to give our Cabernet wine a beautiful balance and creaminess.   The western slope of the Sierra Foothills provide a unique climate zone for growing red wine grapes. 

The grapes growing season is comprised of  hot days that cool when the sun goes down. When the sun goes down this creates a convection that sucks cold air over the vines and shuts down the photosynthesis and respiration.   As the vines aspirate they pull water and nutrients from below the soil down thru layers of mineral deposits.   The spring  snow melt provides a very clean, naturally filtered,  fresh water  source from the runoff.  Wines of the Sierra Foothills are quickly becoming recognized throughout the world for their quality. They have incredible complex bright clean fruit flavors and incredible noses.
