For the collector searching out California's finest premium wines, Dos Lagos Vineyards Cabernet is a limited production with an eager and energetic following. The wines are sold direct to our active allocation list, and may be found at some of the finest restaurants and wine retailers in the USA.
These rare wines begin their life by being carefully nurtured in the vineyards by Hector Lopez, one of the most exclusive Vineyard Managers in Napa. Then it is hand crafted by winemaker Robert Foley-one of the "Top 10 Most Influential Winemakers in Napa Valley".
The Dos Lagos Vineyards are nestled in the hills of the Atlas Peak AVA in Napa, California. A 22 acre property in total, there are 5 acres of premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, and "Two Lakes" or "Dos Lagos" in Spanish.
The property is high on the south facing slopes of Atlas Peak, at an altitude of approximately 1,650 feet. The vines are planted on the gently sloping hillsides reaching down to the two lakes. Our "Terroir" encompasses gentle ridgetop breezes to cool the vines in the afternoon, and poor, rocky soils comprised of white volcanic ash, the "Tuff Series Geology".
Dos Lagos Vineyards sits on some of the most sought after soils in all of Cabernet-land, and the grapes are so special that we are able to offer 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that is 100% ESTATE grown. This is the most pure expression of what mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is all about.
Awards and spent a few days and some late nights meeting rap, R&B and kuduro superstars from across Africa: names like Banky W, Fally Ipupa, Daddy Owen, Cabo Snoop and Radio & Weasel, from Angola to Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond, all huge stars in their own countries, selling truckloads of records despite rampant piracy and a rickety music industry. These guys are kind of the Jay Zs and Snoops of Africa, basically.
