Pugilist Winery’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the famed StarLane Vineyard in the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara. This new AVA was established in 2009, and is distinguished from the Santa Ynez Valley in that it is located further east in a much warmer climate that’s well suited to Bordeaux-style varietals. The StarLane Vineyard is one of the most renowned in this region, managed by the Dierberg family who crafts superb wines that are consistently awarded and highly rated. Pugilist’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon starts with intriguing aromas of blueberries, dried cherries, and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is layered with red fruits, dark chocolate, a hint of dried leather, and notes of Mediterranean herbs. Try pairing the Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled Rib-eye, a burger, or steak frites.
