Picking up that Wild Hog Vista Cab
We love our Wild Hog wines. Daniel Schoenfeld produces some wonderfully exotic wines - many are grown in Redwood Forest soils. This forest environment creates clear cedary aromatics unique to very tiny parts of California. Redwood trees must live in an area not too hot, not too cold, and close to regular fog. Their shallow roots limit their ability to withstand dry conditions and need regular watering. The coastal fogs provide just enough moisture to keep the soils ideal for redwood forests. But cool fog also makes grape growing very difficult. A few spots like Wild Hog's own vineyards (and neighbors) are higher up above a lot of that fog so they get more sunlight, needed for great wine.
Here we pickup an initial order of just 20 cases of the 2007 Wild Hog Vista cabernet. This organically grown wine is low in alcohol, rich in flavor and extremely complex. Enjoy with cedar planked salmon for an out of body experience!
