Little Giant 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Wine 750ml
The “Little Giant” on the label is a tribute to the Newfoundland breed. These dogs are sturdy, loyal little giants that have been bred as a working dog on the eastern seaboard. Legend has it that these dogs were brought to sea and used to pull sailors back to the ship if they fell overboard in storms. In addition, they were known to actually tow small ships to shore by putting the aft lines in their mouths and swimming. Cabernet Sauvignon is often thought of as being a little giant as well. Dark in color, and substantial in body, Cabernet is often a loyal dinner companion and pairs well with full bodied dishes. Newfoundlands and Cabernet are two passions of Owner/Winemaker Chris Dearden. He has lived and produced fine wines in Napa Valley since 1986. A trained enologist from UC Davis, with an MBA from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, Dearden has pursued single vineyard wines for several Napa Valley clients and beginning in 2005, for his own Dearden Wines labels. His wines have garnered both critical and consumer acclaim since 1995. Chris lives in Napa with his wife, two children, two Newfoundlands and a chocolate lab.
