This prototypical big-time cabernet comes from the Santa Cruz
Mountains. It’s very dark with ruby colors and mild tannins, which we
really love. It even has a fair amount of oak in it, which we’re sure
lent to its winning a gold medal at the California State Fair with a
score of 94.
The 2008 Woodside Vineyards Kings Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is
ready to drink right now. However, if you have the fortitude to hang on
for another five years or so, age will only make it that much better.
Yes, it’s amazing right now, but it’s also a wine to really hang onto.
This is a versatile, everyday wine that also holds up well to special
occasions. We currently have it at $25 and firmly believe it’s better
than all its competitors – even those that are twice the price.
This wine goes nicely with beer, BBQ chicken, pastas in a red sauce
chock-full of mushrooms and more. For a cheese and wine pairing, serve
with Beemster X-O- Gouda, Temptin or Krautevl Schaunz Herb.
