Tasting Notes:

It is pleasure and an honor to prepare notes for the next vintage feature of Inspiration Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon. A Cellar Angels' fan favorite, this is another vintage that will not disappoint. In the glass, a lovely red wine with incredible depth of color. The aromatics are captivating with notes of red fruit, sweet tobacco and a dose of Fall leaves. The palate is intense, similar to previous vintages, with flavors of blackberry jam and tart cherry up front and cigar box, dried herbs and forest floor later. The well integrated tannins bring it all together for a delightfully long finish.

Jon Phillips

About the Winemaker:
Jon Phillips' says that his passion for wine is likely in his blood, as he grandparents owned California vineyards in the early 1900's. His love of wine grew through his time working at a tasting room, teaching wine appreciation classes and taking courses through UC Davis Extension in Enology and Viticulture. Making wine in his garage for friends and family since 1999, Jon followed his dream, purchased 6 acres in the Russian River Valley and launched Inspiration Vineyards in 2002. Jon’s small batch wines have earned many accolades, and he also offers winemaking services in the region.
Vineyard:
A small ranch just outside of Healdsburg in the Dry Creek Valley. The Cabernet grapes are grown on an eastern facing hillside vineyard along the western slope of the valley.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
This medium-full bodied Cabernet's prominent acidity is food pairing perfection! Experiment with duck, beef, pasta with meat sauce, lamb, hamburgers and mushroom dishes. Serve also with hard aged cheeses like aged Gouda and Parmesan.
About the Winery
Inspiration Vineyards Born from a dream and a mid-life career change, Inspiration Vineyards was created in 2002. Jon Phillips' passion for wine, however, dates back much further to his grandparents who made wine in the early 1900's. For years, Jon was determined to break into the wine business by working weekends in tasting rooms, teaching wine classes and ultimately enrolling in a class at UC Davis in Enology and Viticulture. Shortly thereafter Jon made his first barrel of wine, a Zinfandel. Learn more
