Red Wine | Cabernet Sauvignon
Toad Hollow Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine 2013 has sourced from cooler vineyards of the eastern rolling hills within the Lodi AVA. Cabernet vineyards there take advantage of ample hours of sunlight and the evening breezes flowing down from the Sierra Foothills. It has hand-picked, crushed, cold-soaked before fermentation and aged in new and older French and American oak barrels for seven months.
This Cabernet Sauvignon has a concentrated aroma of currant, cassis, and loads of red and black fruit that invite the first sip of rich, layered fruit flavors. Mouth-filling ripe black cherry and plum are in tandem to a playfully soft lingering finish. Light essence of vanilla with cola, spice, and toasty oak frame the variety and enhance the fruit. It has bottled at 14.1% alcohol by volume and pairs well with Kristina's Grilled Lamb Chops and Apricot Lamb Tangine. Enjoy!
