2020 Cabernet Sauvignon – Napa Valley
Stephen Alonzo Jackson was a merchant by trade and traveled extensively throughout the United States. In the early days of Kappa Sigma, each trip would also further the expansion of the Fraternity. Between 1873 and 1892, Brother Jackson established 45 new Kappa Sigma Fraternity Chapters beginning with the Mu Chapter at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia to the Alpha-Kappa Chapter at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. This explosion of new chapters occurred along the third longest train route in the United States known as the Crescent, which Brother Jackson used frequently. Established in 1847 by the Richmond and Danville Railroad, the Crescent eventually connected New York City to New Orleans, Louisiana and provided a vital trade route for the eastern United States.
We introduce you to our flagship Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Crescent. This is a premium and classic representation of the appellations' preeminent varietal. Notes of black cherry, blackberry and plum are complemented by hints of toasted oak, dried currant and baking spice. Fine-grained tannins and ample brightness on the palate give way to a polished mouthfeel and exceptionally long finish.
