About the Wine

This super red wine made by Drifting wines is produced in the Lodi County area of California. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark meaning you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Goldstone Land Company. Drifting Cabernet Sauvignon is an inviting wine, made from Merlot grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added suplhites but is suitable for vegetarian drinkers. Elegant, savoury, berry-fruit flavours that are excellent with game, wild mushrooms, rich chicken and beef dishes.
