Cabernet Sauvignon, JOSEPH CARR, Napa County, California

The Joseph Carr wines really bring together the best vineyards and talented wine making into the bottle and then selling that at fare prices.  The vineyard sources for this Cabernet Sauvignon are first rate; Rutherford, Stags Leap District, Pritchard Hill and Red Hills.  You will frequently find the juice from the neighboring vineyards selling for twice the price and more.  I applaud this endeavor for making quality and keeping it affordable.

Joseph Carr wines are produced at Larson Family Vineyards in Carneros, bordering both Napa and Sonoma Counties. A beautiful property built over a hundred years ago by Tom Larson's grandfather; this is where they crush, barrel ferment, blend, and age all of the Joseph Carr wines.  Tom owns over a hundred acres of vines in Northern California, as well as managing 500 acres of some of the finest boutique vineyards in the valley. In this place the people can be creative, laugh a lot, and work together to produce handcrafted wines, unhurried, in a state of the art facility.
