California, Lake County, Red Hills AVA
The Red Hills appellation in Lake County is a new AVA (American Viticultural Area). The iron-rich, red soil of Red Hills is laden with obsidian, a glassy black volcanic rock that glistens in the afternoon sun. Well known Napa Valley grape grower Andy Beckstoffer bought up a piece of the Red Hills AVA, planting it in Cabernet Sauvignon & other Bordeaux varietals with which he is very familiar. Steele has been receiving clone 6 and clone 37 grapes from Andy since 2002.
This wine has a rich, fruit-forward elegance. A spicy fruit & berry core backed up by soft tannins makes it a nice glass of wine for casual sipping among friends.
This Cab. would go well with a spice-rubbed rib eye steak or rack of lamb.
