This month’s Collector Series Top Pick goes to Fore Family Vineyards’ 2008 Red Hills Cabernet Sauvignon.  The Red Hills AVA straddles Napa and Lake Counties and is increasing a source of exceptional wines from small family owned wineries such as Fore Family Vineyards.  We could have easily chosen any number of the Fore Family’s exceptional wines to feature (Doug Fore also fashions outstanding award winning Pinot Noir), but considering the nation’s insatiable desire for Cabernet and how hard it is to locate top notch California Cabernet with some bottle age, we decided on the 2008 Cabernet.   And you can enjoy this well-endowed Cabernet now and over the next decade.  Stay tuned for more wines from this up and coming producer.  Enjoy!
