David's thanking California's hot sun for this gorgeous vintage

    • Thank the California drought - David credits 2015's dry, arid weather for this Cab's exaggerated texture and intense dark fruit flavors.
    • All that heat enhanced the flavors David fell in love with when this Lodi Cabernet was growing on the vine – get ready to slurp in summer goodness like rich black cherries and summer plums. 
    • This elegant red spent 18 months aging in expensive oak barrels, so it stands toe-to-toe with smoky meats. For the vegetarian crowd: Try a grilled portobello burger brushed with truffle oil!
    • This vintage received a Double Gold medal in the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition - that's the highest medal they award!

Aging advice
Enjoy now or cellar up to 5 years

Serving advice
Decanting is nice...

Local food match
OK, I'm hungry for some Dr. Pepper glazed, slow-cooked ribs. For the vegetarian crowd: A grilled portobello burger brushed with truffle oil, a slather of olive tapenade, and sharp cheddar cheese.
