The Simple Life Cabernet Sauvignon is a pure, easy-drinking style of Cabernet Sauvignon. It offers bright fruit flavors, a soft palate with smooth texture, and very fine tannins. The core of the blend was crafted around the juicy, black fruit which is distinctive from Clarksburg and Lodi, California. Cabernet Sauvignon from these areas is known for producing seductive and richly flavored wine.
Lifted aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, violets and baking spice swirl from the glass. The medium bodied wine is juicy on the palate with lush fruit and a subtle dried lavender note adding depth. The wine offers soft, polished tannins and a pleasing, flavorful finish.

Aged for 12 months in French and American oak, this lush red shows personality through rich and ripe aromas of boysenberry and mocha as well as flavors of roasted coffee bean, dried lavender, blue fruit, and toasty oak. The fruit is sourced from Lodi and Clarksburg, with percentages of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Teroldego blended in.
Covering the most vine acreage in the state compared to any other red wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon produces as much wine in California as Merlot and Pinot Noir combined. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates, as well as the freedom of its winemakers, allow for an incredible range of wine styles from this single grape.
California’s most famous region—and especially for Cabernet Sauvignon—is the acclaimed Napa Valley. While Cabernet is successful throughout the world, rarely has it achieved such merit as it does from the Napa Valley. At this point the two are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other.
Napa’s closest neighbor, Sonoma County, does an impressive job keeping up with Napa’s fame and glory. Alexander Valley, Sonoma Mountain, Moon Mountain and Knights Valley contribute to the lot of some of California’s top-rated Cabernet Sauvignon.
Lake County in California’s North Coast has become a focus for some of Napa’s more respected growers. From the Central Coast come iconic examples of classic California Cabernet; Lodi and the Sierra Foothills are great budget-friendly sources of amicable Cabernets.
