Barbed Wire Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
A deep, dark ruby color in the glass hints at the intense aromas of spicy black cherries and mocha in our B arbed Wire Cabernet Sauvignon. Concentrated flavors of juicy cherry and blackberry fill the mouth, leaving a dash of bittersweet chocolate in their wake. Barbed Wire Cabernet Sauvignon is smooth and rewarding on its own, but it’s especially delicious served with smoked ribs, barbecued steak or a juicy burger topped with blue cheese.

We live and breathe the North Coast. We know exactly where to find the best grapes in Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake County and Napa. We discovered an incredible block of Cabernet vines in the Alex ander Valley and blended that with Cabernet fruit fr om a rugged spot in Lake County known for its red volcanic soils and deep concentrated flavor. A touch of Merlot and Petite Sirah fr om Napa Valley created a balanced blend, while aging in oak barrels gave it a rich, full-bodied texture.
We are North C oast locals. We know the mos t interesting vines in the rura l and rugged North C oast are us ually behind the gnarlies t barbed wire. W e’re not afraid to follow that wire, jump the fence, kick the dirt ar ound and get right up close to the grapes. We don’t mind getting a little dirty to make great wine. In fact, that’s our favorite part.
