California Red 2009

The Story
The Profile

The housewarming party for your very first home: a farm table set out in the yard with a gathering of friends who didn’t know each other before, with a simple summer salad and grilled lamb. Your tenth anniversary: a cozy neighborhood bistro in Paris with the best poulet roti and frites you’ve ever had. A long-called for family reunion: in your sister’s bookshelf-lined dining room with your dad’s five brothers and all their kids and the biggest lasagna you’ve ever seen. Whether it's the setting, the company, the food, or the occasion, feasts are mile-markers in our memories, like dog-eared pages reminding us of our favorite passages. Time around a table with family and friends is an essential part of the Cultivate Lifestyle, and we hope you’ll enjoy this special occasion wine with special occasion people, seated around a feast of your own.

This toothsome and persistent Cabernet-Merlot blend was carefully crafted from grapes grown in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.
