LE 2018 Black Cab Lodi California Wine Kit - Winexpert
A dynamic blend of California grapes that combines the bold, full body and brooding tannin of Cabernet Sauvignon with the tart red berries and floral notes of Gamay Noir for a ripe, rounded red with juicy cherry-berry notes and a spicy finish. A classic food wine, this goes with grilling, rich stews, or (even better) a pepperoni pizza.
Tasting notes: cherry, juicy red berries, cassis, pepper, earth, soft vanilla
Grapes have long been a part of the Lodi landscape, where bountiful wild vines used to grow along riverbanks. From the ?rst planted vines in the mid-1800s, the region has ?ourished into a world-class producer, with most of the land dedicated to red wine grape varieties. Lodi’s grapes bene?t from a Mediterranean climate of warm days and cool nights, and a dry growing season which allows growers to precisely manage vine growth through irrigation. Two mountain-fed rivers run through the region bringing rich granite-based minerals to the soil which lend complex ?avours to the grapes.
Black Cab is an intriguing blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Gamay Noir. Gamay is a light-bodied red wine revered for its ?oral aromas and earthiness, with tart red berry and lively acidity. Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red loaded with black fruits, cherry, black pepper and hints of earth. This balanced blend marries the best of both varietals into an energetic medium-bodied beauty. Ripe and round with vibrant acidity and silky-smooth tannins, expect pronounced cherry and juicy red berry ?avours rounded out with notes of cassis, spice, subtle earthy undertones and soft vanilla. Pair with grilled red meats, pizza, black peppercorn tuna, black bean stews or roasted pepper dishes.
