Care for some Classic California Cab for a bargain?
We know you do!
But first, a little history lesson. In the fall of 1894, a caravan of settlers descended upon a small hillside just outside the town of Santa Rosa, about an hour northwest of Napa Valley. Their mission was simple: to start a colony rooted in a more harmonious existence, with the intent of creating one of California’s first utopian colonies.
Its name was Altruria.
Ok… end of lesson and onto wine!
Though the settlement didn’t make it, the 2020 Altruria Cabernet has serious staying power and is slowly emerging as a force when it comes to Sonoma juice that punches way above its price tag. Winemaker Britt Nichols is the leader of this vinous community, and is setting the stage for a utopian drinking experience like no other.
Highly perfumed aromatics of spiced berries, violets, dried citrus peel, pomegranates, and bergamot tea lead into an unctuous and smooth palate rich in red fruits, hints of vanilla and fine tannins. Gorgeous in its youth, this is cool climate Cab perfection in its purest form, and it’s yours for the taking!
And for $19!!!!!
What an absolute steal?!?!? Talk about embodying the pioneering spirit of California!
