THE WINE:
Pietro Family Cellars produces a classic Old World style Cabernet Sauvignon with firm structure that has roots in the terroir, made with minimal manipulation. Following the heritage that Pietro represents, our Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in the great soils of the classic, historic California Cabernet Sauvignon growing regions: Napa Valley and Lake Country, resulting in a North Coast designation.

TASTING NOTES:
Seductive dark berry aromas jump out of the glass, inviting a sip to explore layers of blackberry with beautiful minerality. The softened tannins make the wine very approachable and the Petite Verdot lends a fabulous deep garnet color.

VINEYARD:
The grapes are grown in on the O’Connell Family estate in Napa Valley and Lake County. Lake County is one of the oldest California wine growing areas (15 miles from Napa Valley) with vineyards of deep volcanic soils and elevations ranging from 1300-1700 feet resulting in great acidity and rich flavors.

FOOD PAIRING:
A great wine for everyday sipping and casual dinners- a juicy burger, grilled meats, roasted or BBQ chicken, ribs, grilled vegetables and pasta with marinara sauce.
