The Evening Lands :"The Table" Cabernet Sauvignon - So why a California wine? Are you nuts? No, we found a hybrid Oregon/California winery, The Evening Lands, and their first wines are made from vineyards in both states.
And they are too good - we would be crazy to pass on these wines.
TEL, wanting to "over deliver" their first wines (marketing speak for offering an astounding value for the price to build a reputation) bought some incredible juice. And made a Cab that's astounding for the price.
Why is "The Table" Cab so good and so incredibly cheap? I mean, Napa Cab - what is wrong about this picture?
Turns out, if you get in at just the right time, and know where to look, there's some amazingly good juice for sale in Napa. Pete, the vineyard manager at The Evening Lands, also manages vineyards who sell grapes to Harlan, Aroyo, etc. Maybe not the best known vineyards, but dang good ones. So TEL bought some incredible juice. And made a Cab that's astounding for the price.
