    Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect way to celebrate both National Cabernet Day, which is Aug. 30, and Labor Day. Summer may be ending, but the party doesn't hafta!

    Listening to Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon over and over on his iPod, winemaker Mark Beaman ventured into new territory in wine making. To capture the intense, brooding character of The Dark Side of the Moon he turned to a classic wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon. A varietal with a deep, complex character that takes a relaxed environment to fully appreciate, Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the hauntingly dense, timeless character of Pink Floyd's masterpiece album.

    The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon captures the attitude of Mendocino County's style. Aromas of black currant and cherry are followed by rich flavors of cassis, toasted vanilla bean, and hints of chocolate. Enjoy this rich dry red wine with hearty chicken dishes, beef and lamb, and red sauced pasta.

    Oh, yummy! What a wonderfully informed pairing. We're going to cook up some pasta and down some of this boozy bev!
