This is our first vintage (and unfortunately not for retail), and man it is awesome!! Our label was designed by Brian Faulkner (we will intro him later) and if you look at it just right, you can see the Falcon from our logo. This #cabernetsauvignon is smooth and balanced, medium bodied with hints of bright cherry, hats off to winemaker George Traquato for such an amazing piece of art. #2015cabernetsauvignon
Canned wine requires a complete break from a traditional mindset. This Australian cab was a bit hot for a 13.5% medium ripe fruit on the pallet. Definitely need to open, however, it was actually pleasant straight out of the can. #cannedwine #simplerwines #cabernetsauvignon #australianwine
Joseph Phelps 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley - Decanted. Opaque, deep garnet color. Compressed aromatics - redcurrant, tapendade, graphite, tobacco, spices. A little more open on the palate, showing concentrated blackberry & currant fruit, nicely open and bright, with dense secondary notes consistent with the aromatics - tobacco & cedar with a depth of spices. Full-bodied and rich, but with enough acidity to balance it out. Full and plush tannins, leading to a nice savory and earthy finish. Very youthful, but approachable with a decant. Enjoyed. #cabernetsauvignon #napavalley #josephphelps #winesofinstagram #wineberserkers #winegeek #winelovers

It's almost Christmas weekend, pets! As the great Stanley Tucci says, "gird your loins"! This entertaining label will be the perfect plus one to your holiday parties. Bourbon aged barrel wines are all the rage this season what with their uniquely shaped bottles and trend forward taste. It's a fun spin on a classic wine, what's not to pour! Aromas include black cherry and dark chocolate. The palate is overflowing with full flavors of hazelnut and toffee- the bourbon notes are not shy! Beringer Bros. expertly blends classic Cabernet flavors with the smooth and subtle sweetness of bourbon. I'm off to pack for my trip back home- send tips for last minute gifts! Consider this great $20 & under find my gift to you ❤️🍷 •

We're celebrating #12daysofwine with a series of wines worthy of any holiday! Third, #acronym is a light #cabernetsauvignon that pairs nicely with a hearty meal or a great chocolate chip cookie. Light, bright, and to the point - just like its name, it’s a great addition to any winter evening.
Holiday spices never tasted so festive as these mulled wine poached pears. I served them with a side of blue cheese and pecan salad at our family Christmas dinner party. It’s an easy recipe:
- infuse some red wine like cab or merlot with mulling spices and a little strip of orange peel. Then poach peeled Bosc pears in the mulled wine plus 1/2c of sugar for every 3c wine, for about 40 mins. Then let them soak overnight in the sauce and they will turn this deep rich purple. Before serving reduce the wine into a syrup to pour over the pears. Could be served as a simple dessert with a side of whipped cream instead. . #holiday #mulledwine #pears #christmas #saladrecipes #firstcourse #merlot #cabernetsauvignon #holidayspice #christmasdinner
Nat King Cole holiday music on the hi-fi, my last bottle of 2015 McMannis Cabernet opened and airing, some dark chocolate and a little manchego for snacking, and a few batches of spiced pumpkin bread headed to the oven while a batch of homemade marinara bubbles and brews on the stove in the Dutch oven. Have mercy, it’s a good Sunday night. Wishing all of you a little joy, a lot of peace, and some nice wine and goodies paired with some classic Christmas songs before the work week sneaks in.
