This bone-dry Cabernet is made in a leaner style, bearing flavors of sour cherry candy, cocoa and red currant, with the smoky spiciness from oak barrel aging. It’s also quite acidic. This needs a big, rich cut of meat to balance it out.
Longboard Cabernet Sauvignon Redgrav Vineyard
Longboard was born from the passion of Oded Shakked, surfer first, winemaker later, who brings a unique perspective to winemaking, or rather winegrowing as he prefers to call it. A key Oded insight: Surfing and winemaking are essentially solo activities that can reach across gender, social, economic and age boundaries, creating communities of passionate apostles who know a good wave — and a good wine — when they experience one.
