WINE PROFILE

We spent many hours exploring the dusty backroads of Lodi looking for the grapes that are necessary to make the kind of Cabernet that we like - concentrated, powerful, with flavors of blackberries, dark cherry and cassis. High 7 Seas follows its bold, fruity midpalate with dark chocolate notes on the finish, and plenty of lingering spiciness in reserve.

 

FOOD COMBINATIONS

Ribeye, roast lamb, burgers, pepper-crusted Ahi tuna, Portabella-based dishes, hard cheeses.

 

LODI-NAMITE

This Cabernet is a delicious surprise from Lodi - a formidable, yet under-appreciated wine region. High 7 Seas is made in a totally modern, state of the art facility by a young, motivated winemaker that had trained overseas in some of the world’s greatest wine cellars. The result is a distinctive, polished, plump and tasty Cabernet - a fruit forward wine with medium body.

 

Lodi’s Cabernets are a totally unique expression of this coveted grape variety. Tasted blind, High 7 Seas recalls the famous wines of neighboring Napa Valley, but with a rich, dusty, savory profile that is distinctly Lodi. The truth is, the Lodi wine industry is re-developing almost from scratch, and we’re thrilled to let High 7 Seas be the conduit that allows Total Wine shoppers to get in on the secret.
