Doren - Cabernet Sauvignon - Sonoma Valley
Overview: Doren Wines was created in 2010 by Alluvial Wines co-founder, Ben Doren when he crafted his first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon from a small family vineyard in Kenwood (Sonoma Valley). A decade later in 2020 he added the delicate & quaffable, Josie Rosé, to the program. Doren focuses on meticulous farming by hand, practicing organic methods. Farming is managed without the use of tractors, or chemicals, such as herbicides, pesticides and fungicides. Bringing the highest quality grape crop possible into the San Francisco urban winery for vinification allows for native fermentations (Cabernet), non-manipulative winemaking, and very low SO2 levels.
Our Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is dedicated to the memory of my dad. Al was a Chicago guy to his core. He was…an avid and passionate photographer, advocate for animals and wildlife, the biggest Chicago Cubs fan, super outgoing and an all-around very kind and respectful guy. People loved him and he loved people. He was warm, welcoming to all, and anti-racist. He loved to eat - especially steak, Italian beef sandwiches, Chicago hot dogs, and crispy French fries. But what he loved most of all were his family & friends who now miss him deeply. He was a dedicated husband, father, son and brother. Al passed away in the summer of 2018, and it is with intense emotion, that I dedicate this vintage to him…I love you Pops!
