About This Wine:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of red wine. The 2021 vintage from Old School Lane is a quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon, described by one member of our tasting panel as a “flavor burrito” of enticing fruit and spice impressions.
The grapes for the wine were grown in California’s Lodi region, an area known primarily for Zinfandel. But there are substantial plantings of Cab as well, as the two varieties fare best in the same climate — one that Lodi provides. Not only that, sustainable farming has been practiced in the region for nearly 200 years by generations of grape growers.
The 2021 Old School Lane Cab draws you in with its pretty vanilla, blueberry and baking spice aromas, which follow through on the palate and remain present in the finish. Along the way, notes of cocoa, cassis and chocolate make themselves known, resulting in a concentrated and intense wine that’s a pure pleasure to drink.
