Showdown Man With The Ax Sab Sav is a fabulously easy drinking Californian wine that reminds us of why we love this grape variety so much! Ripe blackcurrant and wild berry fruit aromas complimented by sweet vanilla oak. Rich cassis and black cherry fruit come through on the palate as well which is medium bodied, soft and oh-so-juicy. The finish is long and satisfying, framed by the subtle American oak. A great wine for everyday drinking.

The ‘Man with the Ax’ is the nickname for the King of Diamonds in Poker-parlance, and in California, Cabernet is undoubtedly ‘King’. Rich cassis fruit and a good lick of oak make this a plush, easy-drinking example of why it is so highly prized.

This wine is sourced from vineyards in the northern part of California’s Central Valley. The region around Lodi and Manteca enjoys significant influence from San Joaquin and Sacramento river deltas, which act as a natural cooling system to the often-searing heat. The effect is to provide freshness to the ripe, fruit charged Cabernet grapes. Individual Cabernet blocks are vinified separately and then blended to produce a wine which reflects the right balance between fruit and structure. The wine then spends 6 months in oak to provide a broad frame for this rich wine.
