Dr. Paul Skinner knows as much about vineyard soil as just about anyone in the world. The “wine doctor” got his p.h.D from UC Davis in 1988 for Soil Science and Viticulture while simultaneously working for wine icons Louis M. Martini and Chuck Wagner of Caymus and helping them navigate through the difficult phylloxera epidemic of the late 1980’s.
His reputation for plant and soil health spread like wildfire with the best wineries up and down California lining up to leverage his expertise. He has worked with Beaulieu, Robert Mondavi, Sutter Home, Domaine Chandon, Hanzell, Hess Collection, Sebastiana, Chateau St. Jean, Whitehall Lane, Chimney Rock, Iron Horse, Pride Mountain, Paloma, Terra Valentine and David Abreu’s portfolio of clients… to name a few.
With meticulously tended vineyards by the “Wine Doctor” Paul Skinner, a vintage like 2014 will pretty much take care of itself. Skinner is loath to take credit for the perfection that hit this bottle, instead saying that when conditions are particularly favorable, healthy plants produce exceptional fruit.This striking cab blend is enormous and at 43% OFF on bottle one, 49% OFF on case purchases, it’s a steal. If you want a wine that’s big enough to answer your every day barbecue needs, this one is up for the task.

When I tasted this wine last week, I immediately thought one thing, this full-bodied Red would be perfect with some Spring grilling.
