Saarloos and Sons Courage ECR Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009: The addictively stylish, social media-mastering, family legacy-focused crew at Saarloos produced this plucky red as the final entry in a series to honor a great uncle who died fighting during World War II's Battle of Cherbourg.

Coming from their El Camino Real Vineyard near the intersection of 101 and 154, it's a chewy cab featuring both juicy fruit and earthy presence, a perfect pairing for the upcoming Bacon & Barrels event on their property on July 20.
