The Calling Cabernet Sauvignon

The quote “life is too short to drink bad wine” is a mantra for our gift guides and we will let you in on a secret, some of our best recommendations for great wine are saved for our hard working mothers out there. We can’t go without recommending The Calling Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon – the deep cherry red color rich with notes of a homemade blackberry pie, vanilla, and cinnamon calls for the most generous of pours. The (almost full) glass of this cabernet sauvignon is known for its firm tannins and robustly rich taste. This wine is truly an experience and all that it needs is a bow on top to serve as one of the most perfect gifts. $35.99
