Meet the wine
There’s rare and then there’s less-than-10-acres-of-these-obsure-French-grapes-left-planted-in-the-world rare. The Cab Pfeffer is the latter. Meaning “pepper” in German, the Cab Pfeffer is a delicate wine known for its red fruit flavors and whispers of white pepper spice. Cab Sauv may be the life of the party, but Cab Pfeffer is the intriguing mystery guest: artfully understated with layers of depth.
The Cabernet Pfeffer was carefully crafted from fruit by Wirz Vineyard: an old-vine, organic, dry-farmed vineyard 25 miles from Monterey Bay.
