Located in Lake County, California, known for the cleanest air quality in the United States, you will find Vigilance Vineyards & Winery set amongst the historic Anderson Marsh sanctuary. Preservation of the land and wildlife fit in well with the beliefs of Clay Shannon, owner of this "breathtaking slice of heaven." Certified sustainably farmed, they follow the Ovis Cycle™, a way of working harmony with Mother Nature vis-à-vis the use of sheep (ovis is Latin for sheep). The vineyards feed the sheep, the sheep feed the vines; lamb feeds the people, people drink the wine and wear wool. This leads to a reduced use of mowers, tractors and weed eaters (and the fossil fuels that power said machines); a reduced use of herbicides; better productivity for the human crews (thanks to sheep eating what otherwise would be manually removed, leaves, etc.); wildfire prevention and protection (again, sheep diet); erosion protection and farmland restoration.

Now if, after going through all that in the first paragraph, the wine was okay or average, it would be disappointing. This is not the case. The wine is across-the-board outstanding and drinks way above its price point. That the wine tastes this good lends weight to their described practices and encourages the continuation of the cycle.

Tasting Notes - Lovely ripe red fruits, plum and currants in the fore, lead in the nose. Black cherries, a hint of incense, cedar and rose garden scents follow, making for a heady perfume. The palate continues with more red fruits, cherries particularly, aloft in a sea of rounded tannins and ample acidity. A touch of wood spice and cocoa lead to a sweet, rich finish. Overall? This is a great value play-- a spot-on Cal Cab loaded with plenty of fruits, spice, depth and "stuffing" ( structure through tannins, acidity). If you haven't yet, it's time to get the grill out and fire up some burgers and steaks, lamb or game, and have a few bottles of Vigilance Cab on hand.

Additional Info

Country: United States

American wine has been produced for over 300 years. Today, wine production is undertaken in all fifty states, with California producing 89 percent of all US wine. The United States is the fourth-largest wine producing country in the world after France, Italy, and Spain. With more than 1,100,000 acres (4,500 km2) under vine, the United States is the sixth-most planted country in the world after France, Italy, Spain, China and Turkey.

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climates from Canada's Okanagan Valley to Lebanon's Beqaa Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon became internationally recognized through its prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. From France, the grape spread across Europe and to the New World where it found new homes in places like California's Santa Cruz Mountains, Napa Valley, New Zealand's Hawkes Bay, Australia's Margaret River and Coonawarra regions and Chile's Maipo Valley and Colchagua. The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's aging potential. In cooler climates, Cabernet Sauvignon tends to produce wines with blackcurrant notes that can be accompanied by green bell pepper notes, mint and cedar which will all become more pronounced as the wine ages. In more moderate climates the blackcurrant notes are often seen with black cherry and black olives notes while in very hot climates the current flavors can veer towards the over-ripe and "jammy" side.
