This robust, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon comes out of the bottle with powerful aromas of cocoa, cedar and limestone.  These vibrant aromas are but a prelude to lush, elegant flavors of blueberry, raspberry, milk chocolate, mocha, vanilla and black pepper.  A silky smooth mouth-feel belies the original boldness of this wine and is followed by fine tannins, a full, round texture, and a long, lingering finish.  Lodi is situated between the Sierra Nevada foothills and the San Francisco Bay.  The area's uniquely Mediterranean climate is ideal for the cultivation of world-class wine grapes.  California's top varietals thrive here, creating wines that are the ultimate expression of the terroir.
