Cabernet for Care

2009 Clark-Claudon Estate Cabernet

First Flight Members receives a 33.5% discount on all wine purchased except for those ordered through our Cabernet for Care philanthropic program.

In November, 2016 an increase made our wine prices current with small production, Napa Valley, Estate Grown artisan wines of equal caliber. Yet, to honor our customers who had supported us along the way we decide to protect them from the increase with special pricing. Thus, our non-club customers became our First Flight Members.

2009 Clark-Claudon Estate Cabernet

The 2009 Estate Cabernet presents with dark hues and explosive ripe plum, strawberry and dark stone fruit. It then brings a beautiful mouth feel of full bodied texture, lingers with perfect balance and elegance while adding; floral notes, dry herbs and hints of cola to the abundant fruit all wrapped in well integrated tannins. This exceptional wine follows with a long finish of dark chocolate, floral notes, spicy oak and plum liquor.

In the summer of 2008 Laurie Claudon & Tom Clark searched for a connection between their two passions; making wine and making a difference. Out of that process, “Cabernet for Care” was created.

Initially, Laurie chose a non-profit to support through Cab for Care.  The wine was offered at a 50% discount while the other 50% was donated to that charity.  The customer would then receive a receipt for tax purposes.

Since then the program has evolved into a very basic format.  Simply said, the customer pays 50% of retail for the allocated wine while promising to donate the other 50% to a charitable cause of their choice. There are no checks and balances, but rather a sense of trust.

Over the years, Cabernet for Care has quietly supported cancer research, wounded veterans, mentally and physically challenged children, and educational programs among others. 

“It is impossible not to be proud of how Cabernet for Care has brought together good people and needy causes; so simple yet so powerful!”
