Rick Bakas has scheduled this Thursday September 1st as 2011 #CabernetDay, where all are encouraged to consume and tweet about one or more Cabernet Franc or Cabernet Sauvignon wines. After perusing the cellar, we will open our last bottle of the Frederick Cellars 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine was crafted by Robert Lyons just before his Catoctin Vineyards was purchased by Frederick Cellars. Mr. Lyons has a long history of crafting award winning wines as his 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon joined the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon as winners of the Maryland Governors Cup. The grapes for all their Cabernet is local, from Mountain Creek Vineyards in the Catoctin AVA. You can follow our feed on Thursday using the #CabernetDay and #mdwine hash tags. Cheers.
