A Taste for Cabernet

Private Tasting Experience

Experience the expertise of Sequoia Grove and Cabernet Sauvignon. Join us for a private, small-group experience that uses Sequoia Grove Winery’s vineyard-designated Cabernet program to illustrate how what’s in the vineyard gets into the glass, and how to maximize your enjoyment of Cabernet with a meal. This seated tasting is relaxed, yet informative, and takes approximately 75 minutes. Reservations are required. The experience starts with a tasting of four of the winery’s single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons and our top-tier red blend, Cambium, to illustrate how a vineyard’s unique combination of soils, topography, microclimates and more is reflected in the wine produced from it.  The wines tasted span the Cabernet spectrum, with fruit sourced from the rolling valley floor to the heights of the rocky Vaca Mountain range, and offer participants the opportunity to compare and contrast the diversity of styles, side by side. 

Of course, Cabernet is meant to be enjoyed with food, so after the flight tasting, it’s time to demystify the rules of food & wine pairing. Rather than matching food and wine by weight or color, we demonstrate what will work with Cabernet—and what won’t—by pairing these Cabernets with ingredients that represent the elements of taste that affect wine flavor…with some surprising results.
Reservations are required for this tasting, and can be made online or by emailing or calling Dean Busquaert: 707-494-0905.
