Just in time for Father’s Day, there are three Cabernet Sauvignons from Napa and Sonoma for dad. Growing up, everyone in the Martini household knew dad preferred a nice Cabernet to a new pair of socks on Father’s Day. Not much has changed; we’re pretty sure that dad will take a great Cab over a striped tie any day!
For more than 80 years, the Martini family has made Cabernet Sauvignon its passion and pride. Each vintage, they focus on crafting Cabernet that is an equal expression of the grape variety and the vineyard site.
For the dad who prefers the finer things in life, the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is recommended for its rich dark fruit flavors and luxurious palate.
The Sonoma County Cabernet is for the dad who enjoys a tried and true wine; in this case, a classic expression of Sonoma’s premier vineyards balanced with subtle hints of oak.
Alexander Valley Cab offers an alternative for the dad who likes to break away from the mainstream but still demands a high quality wine packed with flavor.

Blue Nectar Tequila was founded by a father and son duo with a mutual love for Mexican culture. When asked separately, both BN and Nikhil Bahadur are quick to say that their favorite Blue Nectar Tequila is the Reposado ($44.99), which is a unique blend of reposado and even older extra añejo tequilas: just like a family, the older “generation” mellows and smooths the younger.
