WINE PROFILE
Any winemaker will tell you – the most effective tool they have in their vinous toolbox is the art of blending. In this way, a talented vigneron can create a beautiful finished wine - one where the sum is even greater than its parts. And when the palette that you work with is some of the most celebrated vineyards of California, a masterpiece of liquid art is the result. From coastal vineyards breathing in the ever-present fog to inland locations basking in the resplendent Golden State sunshine, the diversity of California Cabernet available to our winemaking team at Life Is A Cabernet is stunning. The result is a wine that reflects its providential origins – both heady, ripe and fruit-forward, as well as vibrant, suave and polished. When the sun is always shining and viticultural splendor is your backyard, Life Is A Cabernet.

WINEmaker notes
We chose this wine for its plush, open-knit style and easy-to-drink appeal. An extended aging period has softened Life Is A Cabernet’s tannins, and this beautiful Cali red is drinking at peak. Nicely extracted, ripe and juicy, this wine evolves with layers of complexity - spanning the gamut from red and black berry flavors to licorice and black pepper tones and a long, expressive, vivid finish. Life Is A Cabernet is a wine with an exuberant personality, overflowing with California charm.

food pairings
