Winexpert Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - Lodi Ranch 11, California
Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic. It's hugely popular for a reason; it's complex, flavourful, and absolutely delicious. A great choice for those who drink reds with food, since it pairs with a wide variety of dishes.
Featuring black currant and dark cherry flavours enhanced with notes of baking spice and toasted oak, this wine is big in flavour and structured with well-integrated tannins.
Lodi is quickly emerging as one of California’s most exciting wine destinations. Situated 100 miles directly east of the San Francisco Bay at the edge of the San Joaquin/Sacramento River Delta, cool delta breezes provide the region with a reliable, natural air conditioning throughout the growing season. This perfect climate allows Lodi grape growers to consistently craft a diverse set of delicious full-flavored varietal wines that display a refreshing natural acidity.
In terms of food pairings, you generally want something fatty to cut through the tannins of the wine. Ribeye, sirloin, or a classic burger and fries are excellent choices. Not a big meat-eater? Portabello mushrooms with lots of butter will make a good cab shine. Hard cheeses like aged cheddar or gouda are great options too.
