Winemaker’s Notes
The blood, sweat and tears that went in to growing this wine are dedicated to the loving memory of my Grandpa Vernon Rhodes. He was truly an amazing man. This Cab takes its name from his miraculous chocolate chip cookie the “V.R. Special”. I bet you wish you could dunk one in a glass of this wine right now. Rest easy, Grandpa Rhodes. We love you! This Cab has a beautiful bouquet on the nose, great fruit with a nice tannic grip, and a lingering finish that will keep you wondering for minutes.
