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 Karlis Dabols' deer he painted named "Winter Midnight".  A warm cabin nestled in the snowy woods pays tribute to the ranchers who settled the area in the 1860s.  With the advent of moving pictures many years later, the scenic Garner Ranch became a popular place for filming westerns featuring stars such as Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, and Audie Murphy. The iconic opening scene of Bonanza where four Cartwrights ride across the valley was also filmed there.

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!

A wonderful wine. It is full bodied with hints of berries and vanilla and oak. Perfect with a nice beef dish or simply to sip in front of the fire place.
