This wine was inspired by Benish Fried AH. The grapes were grown on the Santiago Ranch in Lodi, California, and fermented right here, in Brooklyn, NY. Mokelumne River sub appellation of Lodi is named after the Mokelumme River which is fed from the mountain snow run off from the Sierra Nevada's. This region is known for it's pale fine sandy loam of granitic origin. Along with great water and soil quality, is the classic Mediterranean climate that help recognized Lodi as 2015 region of the year. Mokelumme meaning is "river for the people".
Wines from this vineyard are somewhat fruity with hints of Black Currants with spicy Black Pepper notes. A medium tannin wine with medium acidity, gives this Cabernet Sauvignon that traditional old world full body and savory flavors.
Pairs very well with rib eye steak, braised short ribs, tuna and salmon. It also compliments a pizza very nicely
