Cabernet Season: Stay Like a Pro
October 12, 2018
After the frenzy of harvest, the cooler, calmer months known as Cabernet Season are welcomed by locals and visitors alike. Now’s the time to stroll a little slower and linger a little longer. Maybe even curl up in a deep armchair with a thick novel by the fire – and a big glass of Cab, of course.
