Founder and grape grower Rob Murray followed a path of true grit and determination to find success in Paso, and fought "tooth and nail" to make it happen. The wines he crafts with winemaker Jeremy Leffert embrace the ruggedness of this region, and truly show the quality of this region. From their sustainably grown Paso Robles vineyards, they utilize hand labor for weed abatement as an alternative to herbicides and practice deficit irrigation as a means to conserve water and heighten fruit quality. Plus, they pledge 1% of profits to "1% for the Planet"-a global initiative to benefit the environment and help grow a better world.
The result is Tooth and Nail's "Squad Series", a lineup of wines for those who inspire them most; their loyal followers. They took some of their better vineyard plots of Cabernet Sauvignon, aged it in 25% new French oak barrels for 10 months, and produced a wine that is sure to be a hit at your next dinner party, or barbeque with your "squad"!
With aromas Black raspberry, cherry, and red apples, this full-bodied cab has tasting notes of raspberry, plum, blueberry and tapenade and finishes with great depths and silky tannin that punches way above it's weight class. Plus, if you download the Tooth & Nail app, you can amaze your friends as your phone makes the wine label come to life!
ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "The 2021 Tooth and Nail Squad Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep ruby-purple color and aromas of cassis, garrigue, pencil shavings, cedar and soy sauce. The full-bodied palate has a deep core of fruit, a soft, grainy frame and plenty of freshness, making this very easy to drink and a showstopper at this price point!"
