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.
