2018 Black's Station Yolo County Cabernet Sauvignon
A smooth, tasty, easy drinking Cabernet! This is one for pizza, street tacos and impromptu dinner parties with friends.
Black's Station Cabernet is 100% Matchbook Vineyard and a showcase for the temperate 2018 growing season. This delicious red opens with deep aromas of leather and brown spice that lead to plush flavors of blackberry, mocha and pomegranate. The touch of fruit sweetness is a nice counterpoint to the soft chewy tannins.
Due east of Napa, tucked away in northern California’s rolling Dunnigan Hills, is a little town called Zamora. But back in the late 1800’s, folks around here used to call it Black’s Station. At its height, this hub founded by J.J. Black boasted a hotel, two stores, a jail, blacksmith shops and a town hall. Today we grow our grapes in Zamora. We like to think that they carry with them the character and frontier-style of that old town.
Enjoy this easy drinking Cabernet Sauvignon with a big juicy burger, barbequed tri-tip or on its own fireside at the end of the day.
