Red volcanic soils in the up-and-coming
Lake County’s Red Hills zone, where this red
comes from, give its wines terrific structure.
What You Need To Know
Located directly north of Napa Valley,
Lake County has become an exciting source of structured, Napaesque
red wines at far more reasonable prices. Its best wines
grow in the Red Hills subzone, the home of the enormous, 800-
acre Snows Lake Vineyard. Like most Lake County estates,
Snows Lake sells much of its fruit to established Napa and
Sonoma wineries. This concentrated red, though, is made from a
selection of its Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes.
Traditionally combined in Bordeaux, the grapes create a boldly
fruity, intense and structured red that screams for rare steaks or
Currant, blackberry and
Dense, mouth-filling black
cherry and cola flavors.
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
Steaks, chops, roasts and
stews of red meat and game.
