Divining Rod 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
"Marc Mondavi, who is the eldest son of the late Peter Mondavi, has a reputation as a bona fide water witch, hence the name of his wine project. This is his first venture into Oregon, and it's a welcome addition to the growing ranks of value Pinots from the Willamette Valley. Elegant and affordable, it's loaded with soft, accessible cherry and chocolate flavors, smooth as silk. " Wine Enthusiast 88 Points
“From water, comes wine” – never has this been more true than with The Divining Rod wines. By giving life to countless vineyards across California, Marc Mondavi quite literally “turns water into wine.” Marc Mondavi started The Divining Rod label in 2012 in honor of his ability to locate underground water sources and establish vineyards. The first new brand from C. Mondavi & Family in over 60 years, The Divining Rod has secured its place in a long line of fine wines created by this iconic family.
Marc’s “sixth sense” for water divining (also called water witching or dowsing) and connection with the land, put him on another level of winemaking. That’s why we say that his Divining Rod wines are supernatural and perfect for Halloween and the cooler temperatures of autumn.
98% Cabernet Sauvgnon, 2% “a little magic” (Petit Verdot, Malbec)
This Divining Rod Cabernet Sauvignon delivers a bouquet of black cherry, blackberry, and plum and light flavors of cocoa, which complements the rich, creaminess of desserts.
"Aromas of ripe black fruits. Blackberry character up front with luscious fruit notes develop into spicy black cherry and hints of cured meats and black tea."
