Jamieson Ranch Vineyards in Nappa Valley, United States, is more than just a producer of great wines. Their "Light Horse" label is a metaphor for the winery's unique program of animal therapy for wine enthusiasts, war veterans and children with disabilities. So making beautiful wines and being actively involved in society go hand-in-hand
Entering through the awesome driveway of Jamieson Ranch Vineyards, one is immediately greeted by the awe-inspiring silhouette of the legendary stallion - Whiplash. His sculpture, intense with graceful movement, hints at why this noble creature captured the hearts of everyone with its beauty. Lively, daring and independent as his name, Whiplash was a rare and elegant stallion.
This Californian Cabernet Sauvignon has matured for 6 months in 30% French oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel - this keeps the wine wonderfully elegant but with the necessary finesse. In the nose, this Whiplash Cabernet Sauvignon has a delicious nose of cassis fruit and black cherries with aromas of mocha and spices.
The wine is full bodied, spicy with again the ripe cassis fruit, black cherries, mocha and spices, with a full drink and ripe tannins.
Pair this wine with a nice piece of grilled or baked meat.
Jamieson Ranch Vineyards founded the Light Horse Foundation. The foundation is committed to people with disabilities, especially those with autism, and supporting other major humanitarian disabilities. A portion of the profits from Jamieson Ranch Vineyards supports the Light Horse Foundation. Jamieson Ranch Vineyards (founded in 2013) is Napa Vally's southernmost winery, one of the world's major wine regions. The 300 acres of the estate are perched on gently rolling hills, and on the terraced vineyards, the grapes benefit from the cool morning mist and the breezes of nearby San Pablo Bay, climatic conditions that only benefit the production of exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
