Dynamite Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Hills Lake County, 2006

Our Cabernet Sauvignon offers luscious blackberry, cassis, chocolate and cedar aromas and flavors. Hints of toffee linger on the fruity finish. The rich, velvety flavors make a dynamic match with grilled steak, roasted game, garlicky lamb chops and aged cheeses. The inspiration for the name Dynamite came from hillside vineyards so thick with volcanic rock that we blasted with dynamite to plant the vines. Our colorful label, by Stephen Ward, illustrates the Pomo Indian legend behind the diamond-like quartz that sparkles in one of our volcanic vineyard's soils: The moon wept when she could not be with her love, a Pomo chieftain, and her tears fell to the earth, forming glistening moon tears. Taste the magic in our legendary wines. Alc 13.9% by volume.
