In 2018, we began the endeavor of developing a wine that follows the guiding principles of our business: superior quality, quintessential embodiment of the spirit of the holidays, limited in quantity, and and tells a Christmas story. Our goal was to be able to sell a wine that looked as good on the outside as it tasted on the inside and we did just that. For our 2022 edition, we’re thrilled to be partnering with Cabana Winery out of Lodi, California. Returning to our love for Cabernet Sauvignon, this unique blend of Cabernet, Merlot, and Petite Sirah is aged in charred Tennessee Bourbon Barrels for 18 months to give it a big barrel aged finish. What’s most notable is that this wine has excellent tannin structure and it is well balanced because of Lodi’s warm days and cool nights, which allows the Cabernet grapes to mature appropriately. Although the harvest was small, the grapes were picked at 24° Brix, cold soaked for 3 days, and small lot fermented over a period of 10 days. In short, it’s the embodiment of the spirit of Christmas—inside and out.
