2021 Cabernet Sauvignon, Lodi

Spicy, eucalyptus-infused sip with a blackberry cobbler soul.

The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Lodi American Viticultural Area (AVA) embodies the region’s commitment to producing bold and expressive wines. Grown in a small, sun-drenched vineyard in Lodi, the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes enjoyed a warm and early growing season, resulting in ideal flavor development allowing the grapes to retain more natural acidity.

Crafted skillfully, this Cabernet Sauvignon showcases a warm garnet color and a bouquet of dark fruit, such as blackcurrant and black cherry, complemented by subtle hints of cedar and vanilla from 18 months of French oak aging. The Lodi AVA’s well-drained sandy soils contribute to the wine’s structured tannins and balanced acidity.

Upon tasting, one can appreciate the wine’s full-bodied nature, with rich layers of black fruit, a touch of vanilla and tobacco, with a lingering finish. This 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon from Lodi reflects the region’s dedication to producing wines that capture the essence of the land and the varietal’s character.
