Wine of the Week: Gen5 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon


Posted on November 27

eat & drink blog


We often associate Lodi with excellent Zinfandel wines, but this week I had a delightful (and approachably-priced) Cabernet Sauvignon from Gen5. The grapes for this easy-drinking, supple red were sustainably farmed by the Lange family, fifth-generation farmers (hence the name Gen5). The fruit-forward Cabernet is medium-bodied, with soft tannins and an abundance of blackberry-black currant flavors and an intriguing herbal/smoky finish that would make it a great match with barbecued meats, chili and robust winter stews. This is a great everyday red wine which would work well for casual family dinners as well as holiday entertaining.
