Mission Briefing

Codename:

Capital!

Today’s Kendall Jackson 2012 “Winemaker’s Selection” Capitol Grille Cabernet Sauvignon is a unique, delicious, exclusive blend made specifically for the famous Capital Grille restaurant, very small production and not sold anywhere else including the winery or tasting room.

Sourced from the finest hillside blocks in Knights Valley and Alexander Valley, this wine features elegantly layered notes of juicy dark fruit, spice, and earth, or, in other words, the Complete Cabernet Package.

This outstanding wine is beautifully layered, with lush flavor after lush flavor leaping from the glass with each successive sip. If ever there was a wine that screamed for a perfectly grilled steak, today’s wine is it! The juicy fruit and subtle earthen flavors will pair beautifully with a charcoal-grill seared steak.

Our mouths are watering just thinking about it!

Please accept our boldest recommendation for today’s outstanding Cabernet. Today’s Sonoma offering just may give the best of Napa a run for its money!
