Just because it says “Cabernet”, winemakers are allowed to blend other grape varieties to create the wine that is a perfect representation of their style. You will have the rare opportunity to “channel your inner winemaker” and sample the wines that are blended to make this outstanding Cabernet from Alexander Valley.

We will have samples of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Tannat and Cabernet Sauvignon from different “Blocks” in the vineyard, followed by the finished product, the 2010 Landslide Cabernet.¬†We will discuss microclimates, soil types, elevation and different grape varieties, and of course, how the Landslide¬†vineyard got its name!
