"This stellar wine can from husband-and-wife team Jake Stover and Gina Schober is made from 60-year-old dry-farmed vines found, unexpectedly, in the heart of the famous appellation, known much more nowadays for Cabernet Sauvignon. Stainless steel-aged, it rocks in balanced acidity and stony mineral freshness, as a good can should."

We proudly present the first Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in a can! Our ‘Soda Pop Vineyard’ Cabernet Sauvignon is from a 25 year old, single vineyard (a small, organic vineyard on Soda Canyon Rd. that we started farming this past year) in an area that was greatly devastated from the Napa fires. We picked this vineyard three weeks prior, on September 15th, to create a lower alcohol, lighter style Cabernet Sauvignon, reminiscent of Napa Cabs from the 1970s & 1980s. We de-stemmed the 1.5 tons of Cabernet Sauvignon and let the wine ferment naturally in stainless steel. No oak, again, on our Cabernet and this was purposeful. We gently pumped over the Cabernet to induce secondary fermentation, to create more texture and a smooth finish. 13.5% ABV

We wanted to give you a Cabernet that you could drink on a hot, California summer day and still feel refreshed! Notes of dark, ripe berries, cocoa, and savory nuances of herbs and green peppercorns.
