More about this wine from Napa, California:
Did you know that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually a hybrid of red Cabernet Franc and white Sauvignon Blanc? And that this hybrid occurred out of complete happenstance? And that this happy coincidence became the most widely planted grape varietal for most of the 20th century?! Well it’s all true, and this Rotation Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful example of what this sturdy red grape is capable of.

This wine smells like taking a deep, chest-expanding breath while sitting perched high on a cliff. Wet, grass-stained bramble berry notes laced in the smell of fresh open air. It tastes like violets that have been set on fire by the snap of a bonfire with floral bright raspberry notes. A sizable body ties it all together, making this an all-around banger of a wine.

How to drink it:
While feeling the first fall breeze brush still tanned shoulders
Listening to Sam Hunt’s Make you Miss Me.
Eating This is a wine that screams for a clam pasta with lots of butter and oil, this wine is comfort food.
