'Baby Cab' Cabernet Sauvignon, Lodi, 2017
20% OFF - Mix & Match Any 6 Bottles and Growlers
Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaker: Kryss Speegle
Production Method: Stainless steel fermentation, 10 months in neutral French oak.
Tasting Note: A baby Cabernet that shows classic Cabernet Sauvignon bing cherry and cassis notes, a soft mouth feel and just enough grip to keep it interesting. The finish is incredibly satisfying and showcases great balance between fruit and acid, while not being over the top jammy or baked. A pleasing wine for sure, on its own, or with a meal of grilled fare. Overall the wine is medium-full bodied, has moderate alcohol and acid and may just become your ‘Go-To’ Cab.
