Wine of the Weekend

Irony North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

The great Father’s Day gift hunt is underway – but look no further! Irony North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect wine to put a smile on dear old dad’s face this weekend. All you need is a bow and a tag and you’re all set! Well, maybe pick up an extra bottle: one for dad and one for the dinner table.

Tasting Notes: Irony Cabernet opens with black cherry and cocoa notes, followed by ripe, dark fruit and cassis, elegantly delivered over a wave of soft tannins and toasty oak.

Enjoy With: Grilled red meats like bacon cheeseburgers or a T-bone steak with grilled portobello mushrooms, braised meats or rich stews, pizza with meaty toppings, and strong, aged cheeses.

Style: A dry, full-bodied red wine.

Terroir/Region: The North Coast region of California ranges from San Francisco Bay up to northern Mendocino, allowing wineries to select ‘North Coast’ grapes from different regions with different attributes. The skill in making this wine is in blending the best of the regions. Fruit from Napa, Mendocino and Red Hills Lake all contribute to the balanced structure of Irony Cab.

Producer: Three generations of the Indelicato family have steered the winery to the position it holds today, beginning with Gaspare Indelicato. An emigrant from Sicily, Italy, Gaspare planted the first Delicato vineyard in Manteca, California, in 1924 – an area that reminded him of his homeland. With his three sons, he went on to establish a winery, building a solid reputation for making quality wines.

AvailabilityIrony Cabernet Sauvignon will be available in the Vintages section of your local LCBO and for online ordering on Saturday June 18, but some stores may already have it on the shelf.  Cheers to all the Dads!
