Uphold Wines 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon 'For Education', California
How cool are Ryan and Megan Glaab of Ryme Cellars?! They created Uphold wines with the dream of contributing to causes that they valued and wanted to support. The inaugural bottling includes three wines to uphold the protection of the planet, women's rights, and people's equality. 100% of the profits of these wines go to charities, with "For Education" Cab supporting education causes domestically and abroad. So drink up, dammit! You're doing a great thing!
This honest and delicious Cabernet ticks all the right boxes, with earth, dark fruit, and tobacco on the nose and continuing through with plumb and cocoa powder on the palate. We love the structure on this one - medium, just shy of grippy, and a lovely velvety finish. Pair this beauty with steak au poivre, portabello mushrooms, and writing postcards to protest Betsy DeVos.
