As we head into summer, it’s all about celebrating with good friends, good food, and fine wine. As songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews said, “If it tastes good to you then it’s good wine.” Matthews believed so strongly that the passion for making wine should be as strong as the passion for drinking it, so he set out to make unforgettable wine that’s accessible to everyone.
By partnering with New Zealand winemaker Sean McKenzie, they launched Dreaming Tree Wines that is priced affordably without sacrificing taste or quality. Their 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is very expressive yet elegant. It has a classic blend of blackberry, cherry, and cassis aromas, wrapped in toasted caramel and soft tannins that have a supple and balanced taste. Dreaming Tree Wines reflect Dave’s mission as an excellent wine-maker and the soul of a rock singer that pairs perfectly with a full bodied cheese at an alfresco picnic or a backyard BBQ.
