Wine Tasting gone virtual! We continue to explore how Texas wines compare to other states and countries. This week we are going to California! We’ll be tasting our Landon Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2017 vs 101 Barrels Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 from Napa Valley. 2 bottle wine tasting pack price $44, list $58; no additional discounts, limit 4. Tune in via Facebook Live on any Landon page at 4 pm CDT on Sat, August 22 to taste along with us, virtual wine tasting with Bob Landon.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely grown red wine grape variety in the world, and it’s the most searched and sought after in the world. Full-bodied and rich, Cabernet Sauvignon is assertive and complex. It has plenty of tannin and acidity and shows off flavors of blackberries and plums, along with vanilla, cedar, chocolate, and coffee. Bottom line, it’s a great choice for big, meaty dishes and rich sauces.
Our favorites include Blue Cheese Burgers or Mushroom Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers, the funky blue cheese adds an element that is extremely Cab friendly. And if you’re up to the challenge, Bob’s fave Grilled Lamb Chops need a powerful wine like Cab Sauv to stand up to its bold flavor.
