Aromas: Persistent dark fruit, predominant black cherry and blackberry. Undertones of brown sugar, coffee, cedar and a hint of tobacco.
Flavors: Expressive black cherry, blackberry, plum, blueberry and licorice. Firm tannin entry opens to a broad mid-palate.
Pairings: This versatile Cabernet Sauvignon is at home with classic pastry-wrapped Beef Wellington, or a piled-high tri-tip sandwich on grilled sourdough.
The North Coast AVA encompasses six Northern California winegrowing counties—including Napa and Mendocino—each defined by cooling wind and fog influence from the Pacific Ocean.
Dough is the first ever wine collaboration for the James Beard Foundation, and leading our winemaking is Heidi Bridenhagen, who has received over 200 90-point scores at MacRostie Winery. Heidi crafted the wines in concert with a diverse group of chefs and beverage professionals, all alumni of the Foundation’s Impact Programs, to create the most food-friendly wines possible.
Dough is the foundation of bread, signifying new beginnings. Like making bread, thoughtful nurturing creates positive change that rises from the simplest of actions. We support the James Beard Foundation’s work to create an inclusive, equitable and sustainable food culture through an annual donation. As a brand, we support positive changes to the culinary arts and beverages professions. Each glass, bottle and conversation can make an impact, and become a catalyst for good.
