Radiate positivity as the season transition to fall! Enjoy the day outside, soaking up the
last bit of sun, then head out to an evening bonfire with this comfy flannel.

Fall is full of rick flavors and colors, which
makes Cabernet Sauvignon the official drink
of the season. This season, one of my favorites
is the 016 Lynch Family Cabernet Sauvignon.
As you open this wine, notice the dark purple
coloring and aroma of ripe berries with a layer
of baking spice from the percentage of new
French oak usage in the aging process. You
can taste the impact of “explosive” qualities the
volcanic soil imparts upon the wine. Flavors
of blackberry and ripe cherry combine with
flavors of vanilla and ever-so-delicate floral
qualities that round the wine into a complex
explosion of flavors.
When pairing this wine, you’ll find that this
Cabernet is a meat-lovers dream. Pair with
fattier cuts of beef such as porterhouse and
ribeye and even bolder game meat such as
elk or bison with red wine cherry reductions
make a nice complement to the high tannin
structure and larger body fruity qualities of
the wine. As the fall months wind on and
the temperatures cool off, try braised short
ribs with rich mashed potatoes, or beef stew
cooked with red wine, and you’ll notice the
red wine does a fantastic job of cutting the
rich qualities and textures of the dish.
