Introducing Our Newest Cabernet Sauvignon - Embracing the Lighter Side
By Gary Erickson and Kit Crawford
Imagine this: you’ve just finished an exhilarating bike ride through the stunning mountain passes of Italy. Now it’s time to unwind and enjoy the simple pleasures in life, like good food and wine. We’ve always been fans of bold reds, but lately, we’ve been gravitating toward lighter-style red wines that perfectly complement those special moments throughout the day.
Think about those amazing lunches you’ve had, where a lighter red wine effortlessly pairs with dishes like salad, pasta and bruschetta. Inspired by those experiences, we set out to create a Cabernet Sauvignon that captures that feeling. Our brand-new Vino del Pranzo Cabernet Sauvignon, translated to ‘Lunch Wine’, allows you to savor the flavor and depth of a red wine without feeling overwhelmed by high alcohol and intensity. It’s the perfect choice to keep you refreshed and ready for whatever comes next.
The highlight of these lighter-style red wines is their versatility. They adapt effortlessly to any occasion, making them a great companion for all your adventures. Whether you’re planning a picnic, setting out on a hiking trail, or simply having a laid-back gathering with friends, our Vino del Pranzo adds a touch of elegance without overwhelming your senses.
And hey, we get it. Not everyone wants their wine to knock them off their feet. That’s why our new Cabernet Sauvignon caters to those who prefer a more moderate approach to their wine enjoyment. With a lower alcohol content and a lighter body, it’s the perfect fit for a mindful and balanced lifestyle.
Our incredibly talented winemaker, Laura Barrett, worked her magic to create the very first vintage of our Vino del Pranzo using grapes from our organic Valle di Sotto Estate Vineyard in Napa Valley. The 2021 vintage is all about elegance, showcasing flavors of juicy red currants and luscious blackberries.
We hope that Vino del Pranzo becomes your go-to wine for embracing the flavors of lunchtime and beyond. It’s the perfect companion for those moments when you want to indulge without feeling overwhelmed.
