The Federalist Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon is a revolutionary wine created to honor the man many call the first American, Benjamin Franklin. Ben Franklin was a passionate man who helped draft the Declaration of Independence and campaigned for colonial unity during the American Revolution.
The Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of blue/black fruits (blackberries, blueberries) and cinnamon spice, a good density, firm tannin structure, and a long, smooth finish.
It was time to break away from convention. From those that would say things like "Make sure your structure is firm and your acidity is lively.” It was time to create something to call our own. A wine for the people. So, we brought forth a union of wines unshackled by the past, yet deeply rooted in the American ideal of “Whatever I’m drinking should taste good dammit.” Distinctly American craft wines wrought with as much character and bold spirits as the figures that don every bottle. Born from the virtues of every forward-thinking, hard-working, red-blooded American, this is The Federalist; this is American craft wine.
The Federalist's vineyards are located in Sonoma County, California, and sourced from 100% estate grown new vines on the estate.
