Mettler Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Lodi 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Our newest vintage the 2002 Estate Cabernet is released, and has already been winning much acclaim! This cabernet has an approachable yet traditional . It's fruit frowardness, is balanced by structured tannins. It pairs beautifully with barbequed lamb chops with fresh rosemary, filet medallions and caramelized onions, and is sinfully delicious with dark chocolate. An excellent choice to drink now or cellar. -Gold Medal! - 2006 San Diego National Wine Competition -Gold Medal! - 2005 Riverside International Wine Competition -"Should be quite popular!" - The Colorado Wine News - August 2005 -90 Points! - The Wine News - July 2005

With their roots in the wine industry dating back to the 1770s, it’s no surprise that the Mettler Family is still growing grapes today. After migrating to the U.S. in the late 1800’s, the Mettler family migrated to California, where they knew that farming would bring success. The east side of the now famous Lodi region is where the first Mettler vineyards were planted by George Mettler which began the family's Lodi legacy. Carl Mettler, 4th generation farmer and George’s grandson, continued the family tradition and dedicated his life to farming his grandfather's land. Carl and his wife raised their family amongst their Lodi vineyards. Carl worked closely with nearby Universities and delegated several vineyard sites to experimental varieties. This experimentation helped to establish growing conditions for specific varieties in the Lodi region. Carl's dedication in the vineyard awarded him a spot in the Agricultural Hall of Fame. His integrity and love of the land is still being carried out by one of his three sons, Larry Phillip, who is also the receipient of the Agricultural Hall of Fame award and still farms the original Mettler Vineyards, along with his wife Char and their three children, Kimberly, Kelli and Adam.
