This is our inagural "Idyllwild Deer Sightings" wine release.  This is the first in a series of Idyllwild artist-inspired labels, part of the proceeds from all sales of this bottling will be going to support the Art Alliance of Idyllwild.

The "Deer Sightings" project is Idyllwild's first large-scale installation art project that placed 22 life-size and life-like deer painted by local artists around our town of Idyllwild, California.  You can read more about the project in our Summer 2014 Newsletter.

This is label-art design winner Kathy Harmon-Luber's deer she painted named "Dotttie". Dottie’s impressionist images feature Mother Luna in the night sky over Lake Fulmor. Formed in 1949 through the construction of a new Banning-to-Idyllwild highway, Lake Fulmor is considered by some to be Riverside County’s most scenic man-made lake. With statuesque pines encircling the lake and a fully accessible pier, it’s a popular spot for fishing and picnicking.

This medium-bodied Cab Sauv is bright and juicy … or, as one of our friends exclaimed, “It’s a happy wine!”  It starts with an abundance of dark fruit aromas like blackberries, black cherries and blueberries along with a hint of baking spice.  Let it open up a bit, and ripe red berry fruits pop out.  With a silky smoothness and just the right amount of bite, this very approachable Cab Sauv is poised between richness and restraint.  It’s a perfect match for beef or lamb dishes, especially when accompanied by earthy foods like root vegetables, olives, mushrooms and red bell peppers.  Cap the meal with a bowl of berries topped with a dark chocolate sauce, and you’ve got a winner!
