Wine ProfileDouble Gold winner at the West Coast Wine Competition with an impressive 98-point rating. Celebrate the barrier-breaking Japanese-American jazz pianist and composer Toshiko Akiyoshi with this rich Cabernet Sauvignon from City Winery's Portraits in Jazz wine series. Aromatically, this wine leaps from the glass, conjuring the image of a rainforest picnic on a blanket surrounded by mossy trees and damp earth. In the mouth, cassis comes to the forefront, bringing blackberries and cocoa along for the ride.

About Portraits in JazzThe City Winery Signature Series is an exclusive collection of our finest wines with label artwork designed by acclaimed artists. Our debut collection is Portraits in Jazz by William Horberg, a prolific Hollywood movie producer, musician, and talented visual artist who has drawn hundreds of jazz portraits as a way to celebrate, in his own words, "one of the greatest art forms ever created." For Horberg, "drawing the people who make that music is a way for me to remember them." A portion of the proceeds from each bottle sold will go to support the Creative Music Studio, based in Woodstock, NY, where Horberg resides.
About the VineyardThis Cabernet Sauvignon is a truly special wine, produced from impeccably sourced grapes from the famed Bettinelli Vineyard. Located on a gently sloped, alluvial fan on the west side of the Mayacamas benchland in Yountville, Bettinelli also provides fruit to many of Napa's cult wineries. Bettinelli Vineyard consistently produces top quality wines - a perfect match for William Horberg's fine artwork.
Please note our Signature Series wines do not qualify for any discounts, sales or promotions.
