“The 2012 Dark Horse Cabernet Sauvignon has bold flavors of blackberry and cherry supported by firm tannins, brown spice and a dark chocolate espresso finish. This Cabernet Wine was carefully aged to develop dark fruit flavors and dark roast aromas.

Dark Horse Cabernet is made from a blend of hand-selected grapes grown predominantly in the Lodi and Delta winegrowing areas of California’s Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys. ”

“The 2012 Dark Horse Chardonnay has rich flavors of baked apple and pear, layered with toasted oak, notes of caramel and brown spice with a smooth, lingering finish. This Chardonnay underwent alcoholic fermentation with hand selected yeast and then a secondary malolactic fermentation to create a round, full mouthfeel.

We selected the ripest fruit from the Lodi, Delta and Clarksburg areas for our Chardonnay wine and we’re proud to offer it as the perfect complement to our red wines.”

There were several games set-up with excellent prizes including GoPros. The “Spin the Dark Horse WHeel” was by far the most popular. I love the sequence of photos (below) that captures a group of contestants and their reactions, especially the gentleman on the right spinning the wheel. PRICELESS!!

Tonight was about being bold, drinking delicious wine, enjoying tasty food, and understanding that no matter if it’s Chardonnay or Cabernet, Red Blend or Merlot, if it’s from the E & J Gallo family of wines, it’s will be bold and delicious! Bravo to the Gallo family and to drinking fabulous wines!
