Our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon shows o a deep, inky, purple-red color in the glass. It opens with inviting aromas of dark cherry, pepper, tobacco, mineral and earth. The graceful mingling of cherry, dark fruit and sweet oak avors have a freshness of character and a whisper of clove. On the palate, the plush mouthfeel is moderated by juicy acidity, and the long, tannic nish is reminiscent of a ne Bordeaux. This elegant and poised Cabernet is accessible now, and its structure and complexity will see it through many years of aging.
In addition to “Lodi Rules” sustainability, in 2010 we took our vineyards to the next level and became certified organic through the CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers). It has been a vision of the family for years to become an organic farm and this is an important commitment to the quality and uniqueness of the Mettler wines. As farmers—and as a family—we hold a fundamental belief in giving back to the land, to maintain its bounty and nourish the soil to last for many generations to come.
