This soft, simple Cabernet will go just fine with everyday fare. It's dry, full-bodied and tannic, with proper varietal flavors of blackberries, currants and smoky oak.
Founded in the late 1970's, Maddalena Vineyard is a pioneer of California's Central Coast appellation, which includes Monterey, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Barbara Counties. At that time, the Central Coast was relatively unproven in its ability to produce world-class wines. Today, however, the coast is the most rapidly growing premium wine region in California.
Quality begins in the vineyards. The Riboli Family, including matriarch Maddalena Riboli, farms estate vineyards in Monterey in order to insure the ultimate level of grape quality. Longterm partner-growers are also held to the same level of strict control. This dedication to quality continues in the cellar, where winemakers Anthony Riboli and David Vergari employ traditional techniques to preserve the individual flavors or terroir of each parcel of land. After fermentation, careful blending creates the greatest degree of complexity and insures consistency of style from vintage to vintage.
