2008 Racehorse Red
Our 2008 Racehorse Red Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon-Zinfandel blend is
an ode to our twin passions of artisanal wine and thoroughbred racehorses.
It combines the best aspects of these two classic California grapes. The black
raspberry and briar fruit of the Zin is balanced by the black cherry and
chocolate of the Cab, with the entire package wrapped up in cedar, pipe tobacco
and sweet baking spices from oak barrel aging.
Drink this versatile wine with steaks, chops, ribs, pastas with red sauce, barbecued salmon, or another of your favorite dishes.
