Region: Calistoga, Napa Valley, California

Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting notes: LOLA Artisanal Series Cabernet Sauvignon is a bright, pure expression of Napa Valley Cabernet, reminiscent of the old days of the 60's and 70's - wines that are still aging and tasting beautifully today. The wine shows an intensely dark ruby color with aromas of red plum, black cherry and currant gracing the nose. On the palate, firm structure and natural tannin provide a gripping intense mouth-feel falling off into a long supple finish. This wine will continue to get better and better as the years go by and will age beautifully for 30+ years.

Producer: Established in 2008, by winemaker and owner Seth Cripe. Seth’s dream of making wine and growing grapes started randomly as a 14 year old dishwasher/busboy at a restaurant in his native Anna Maria Island in Florida. At the age of 17, Seth left home to pursue his dream, driving across the US in his trusty 88 Suburu with $1200 and arriving in Napa Valley the summer of 1997 where he started work as a harvest intern at Swanson Vineyards, under the mentorship of Marco Cappelli. After 4 harvests at Swanson, 8 harvests at Caymus along with a few others at some of the worlds’ most renowned wineries, in 2008, Seth started making his own wines calling them LOLA.

Vineyard and Winemaking: 100% de-stemmed and fermented on the skins for 10 days at 78 degrees with native yeasts. Fermented in open top tanks with hand punchdowns. Aged in 100% Neutral French Oak for 6 months.
