cassis fruit; lush and balanced; long and earthy.”

20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION
This wine pairs well with Mexican Carnitas tacos (barbecued pork) spiced with cardamom and spicy chiles served with salsa fresca. It’s great with anything off the grill from Tri-tip to chops to filet mignon and for vegetarians go for an impossible burger made with grains and/or mushrooms.

Vinum 2016 Red Dirt Red (Paso Robles) - Very strong smoky aromas of hickory and a solid pepper spice give a savory background to the backdrop of blackberry fruit on the nose of this bottling. That smoke carries into the palate, where roasted wood, campfire and bacon flavors meet with black currant and caramel. —M.K.

This is the most concentrated vintage of Red Dirt Red we have ever made. It expresses a dark plum, cranberry staining color which comes from low yielding, concentrated grapes.
A wine with plum, rose petal, toast, and cherry aromas/flavors and a medium length finish.
Wine Enthusiast, 03/18
"Very rich and ripe, but also very firm and well built, this full-bodied wine has all the elements for great balance: robust and dry fruit flavors, good acidity, firm but not harsh tannins and appropriately strong alcohol. It's great to drink now with something rich and fatty, but will be best after 2020."
Wine Enthusiast, May 2019
This is a wine we have wanted to make for about 15 years. The concept is simple, when you choose the right clones of Pinot Noir grown in the best spots and picked at optimal ripeness the flavors that jump out of the glass are easily summed up by the expression “Cherry Bomb”.
Vinum Cellars was established in 1997 based on producing value oriented, varietal/appellation specific wines. Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley confirms our belief that only specific grape varietals should be grown within appellations that are ideally suited to the varietal.
89 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"This is a sleeper selection, coming from the eastern side of Napa near Atlas Peak. At $42.00, this is an outstanding value for a top Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa. Drink now-2030." - Robert Parker
This is our fifth vintage, which yielded three barrels from 3 acres. Aged in new French oak for 22 months, we produced 58 cases.
