Three Finger Jack – Cabernet Sauvignon – Josh’s Selection 

 December 1, 2020

By  rackhouse

The story goes that Three Finger Jack was a notorious desperado who roamed the Sierras and the land east of Sacramento in the closing days of the Old West. Nobody knows where he came from, how he lost two fingers, or where he died. But his legend still lives on today in Lodi, California.

Lodi sits at the foothills of California Gold Country, 75 miles east of San Francisco. Its hot days are cooled by breezes from a vast river delta, and it’s home to sandy soils that force vines to dig deep into the ground. Pioneers knew that Lodi made superb wine country; so they planted vines here more than a century ago.

Silky and supple, this opulent Cabernet provides focus and fruitiness that is signature to the vineyards of Lodi, CA – specifically Lodi’s East Side Ridge which features warm days and cool evenings. With great concentration and full body, this wine is extra dark in color and carries aromas that are brimming with black currant and black cherries. The wine is aged for nine months on a blend of American and French oak barrels that provide soft tannins, a smooth mouthfeel and opulent finish.

Polished tannins and saturated flavors of black plums and cherries spiced with coffee and black pepper carry through to the finish. As with most Cabernets, this could be served with juicy steaks, lamb chops, rare burgers, or aged cheeses.
