2011 Vainglorious Cabernet Merlot

Far from humble, this Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot swells with pride, and basks in its own self-importance. Though we loathe to admit it—its behavior is completely justified.

Tasting Notes

A nose of blackberry, cranberry, cassis, black cherry and some cedar; the taste follows the nose with a cranberry-mocha finish and cherry dominating the mid-palate.

Food Pairings

Vainglorious benefits from the synergy of Merlot in the Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a wine that pairs well with red meats, pasta & red sauce, meatloaf and sausages.

Winemaker's Notes

The Red Cellar series (Big Mouth, Frank, Bravado, SonofaBitch, Vainglorious) are selected from precise blocks of our vineyards. They are all picked by hand and carefully processed during crush operation in order to extract the best of each variety. These wines are made to reflect the uniqueness of each variety coupled with our own terroir. As such, we extracted and aged them in a way to preserve their own internal varietal characteristics. We carefully monitored the oak aging to keep the balance of the fruitiness of the wine and the varietal character.
