Who needs an umbrella when it’s raining down California Cab? That’s the kind of rain we like being caught in – big, bold drops of liquid sustenance. And sustenance it is, when you’re farming the vineyards of Lodi – a warm, dry region of Northern California known to produce incredibly concentrated, intense, extracted wines. Where wine is a beverage, a crucial part of life in the fields. There, in Lodi, they make the wines like how they want to drink them, and they like them bold, rich and muscular. So we say – call the Cab and let it rain!
Tonight’s Forecast Cabernet is a torrential downpour of dark fruited, spicy / savory goodness. It washes over the palate in waves – from blackberry to clove, dark plum to licorice; persistent and constantly flowing. A dam of sweet, ripe tannins help to channel this full bodied wine to a finish that hints of vanilla, tobacco and leather.
