Offering flavors of apple, honeydew melon and toasty oak, with a crisp clean finish, this gorgeous wine was 50% barrel fermented and 50% stainless steel tank fermented. A deliciously fresh wine that pairs nicely with cheese and fruit platters, grilled tuna or light pasta dishes.
Clay Buchholz can be untouchable, proven by the no-hitter he tossed in just his second big league start. Yet, he reaches back and connects with those in need across the community. Proceeds from Clay ChardonClay support the Jimmy Fund, an official charity of the Boston Red Sox, in the fight against cancer at Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, helping to raise the chances of survival for children and adults with cancer locally and around the world. Cheers.
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, Healdsburg, California
Benefiting the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
Rich deep burgundy hue with aromas of blackberry and currant and elements of toasted oak, chocolate and spices. On the palate, flavors of blackberry pie with hints of ripe black cherries, sweet oak and white pepper. Maintains dryness with firm, yet supple tannins. Great paired with roasted and grilled meats such as lamb, prime rib or porterhouse steak.
Jon Lester knows the importance of overcoming barriers in life and on the diamond. Less than two years after being diagnosed with lymphoma, he pitched the biggest game of his life, helping his ballclub win a world championship. That's why proceeds from Jon Lester's CabernAce support Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the development of targeted immunotherapies. This pitch helps researchers maximize the body's own ability to strike out and eliminate disease so lymphoma patients can win their own games in life.
