A Quarterly Red Cellar Trio Wine Club Selection
A Quarterly Golfweek Mixed Wine Club Selection
Chris Iannetta and Vernon Wells started Two Old Dogs after a wine-fueled conversation in 2012. Major League teammates and both dads—they share passions in wine and family. While teammates in Los Angeles, they were both injured and rehabbing together when they discovered the Napa Valley and a shared love for wine and the rest is history. Add Julian Fayard, one of Napa Valley’s most respected winemakers, and the result is the production of California varietals with a French ﬁnesse.
Originally from France, Julien began his career as a winemaker producing quality rosé at his family’s winery in Provence. In Bordeaux he worked at Laﬁte Rothschild and Smith Haut Laﬁtte before relocating to Napa Valley.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard source is sustainably farmed in the Stag’s Leap District across the Silverado Trail from Darioush Winery. Aged in 100% French Oak, 65% new. 700 cases produced.
Dark burgundy. Classic aromas of ripe black fruits. Full-bodied. The palate is rich and rewarding with ﬂavors of blackberry, bramble fruit and loads of cassis. Hints of olive and bell pepper are followed notes of vanilla, mocha and cedar throughout the long, grippy ﬁnish. The ﬁrm tannins are artfully balanced by a solid acid backbone. Perfect for drinking now or saving for a special celebration!
Cellaring Recommendation: 10-15 years
