Longboard Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Redgrav 2006
This little hillside vineyard was planted by the Rochioli family in the 1960s. The vines are planted to St. George roostock, producing tiny berries full of flavor. At release, the wine displayed a lovely aroma of blueberries and violets layered with light hazelnut and vanilla. The wine finishes with a long black currant and spicy note. The acidity in the wine is just enough to balance the sweet tannins, ensuring it will age gracefully for many years.
Try balance, harmony and nature for starters. Surfing is part sport, part meditation and all working within, rather than against, nature. Winemaking? Pretty similar approach. Both surfers and winemakers reach the summit of their respective crafts when they attain an understanding of, and a respect for, the environment in which they work (and play). Adapting to their surroundings, they achieve peak performance, on the waves and in the vineyards.

Longboard Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Redgrav Vineyard Alexander Valley 2006 750ML
At release, this Cabernet bursts with dark berry aromas and a spicy fennel note, slight earthy and floral notes are there too, they become more prominent after some time in the glass. The body is lush with dark fruit flavors and a core of "sweet" tannins, a term denoting weight and velvety sensation (not sugar). The wine finishes with a long blueberry, plum and slight mocha nuances. I hope this wine reminds you why you loved Cabernet Sauvignon to begin with. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
