The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley.

Rich and round, but with a youthful edge, this is the sort of cabernet you want to drink with friends around the grill, where what you offer for dinner will tame the light tannins.
