There are plenty of wines out there with cute dogs on them but the Cru Vin Dogs area little different. If you put champion dogs on your label you’ve got a bit to live up to. The 2005 Best in Show Cabernet Sauvignon features a pastel pencil drawing by artist Jay P. Snellgrove of a German Shorthaired Pointer.
The wine is made from the Jackson Selection of Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley. The original cuttings of this clone came from pre-phyloxera vines and the resulting wine is an intense spicy wine with hints of dark chocolate.
97 cases were produced and it sells for $75 a bottle.
Cru Vin Dogs pledges that a minimum of ten percent of sales revenue on all wines, art, and merchandise is split equally between Canine Companions For Independence and the Morris Animal Foundation’s Cure Canine Cancer Campaign.
