Summer is winding down. There’s no denying that Labor Day and the start of school will soon be here. Vacations will wrap up and Fall will soon be here. Despite summer’s exit, it’s the perfect time for entertaining and unwinding under the stars at night. Grilling, entertaining, and a good wine are more perfect than ever as the night’s begin to have that perfect balance of warm and chilly. It’s the just right time to grab some JaM Cabernet and set the playlist to some of your favorite summer jams.
JaM Cab is the perfect go-to for these summer nights. JaM Cellars makes three easy-to-love, everyday California wines – Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling. Second-generation Napa Valley vintners John and Michele are the “J” and the “M” in JaM Cellars. These wines were made in a style that they love – enjoying with friends any day of the week. The wines are rich, bold and lucious and you’ll love these berry-licious, everyday wines. Hands down, it’s my pick for the best Cab under $20!
Some notes on the Cab:
- 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
- Harvested at perfect ripeness and made in the tradition of Californian winemaking
- Bursting with ripe, dark berries and plums.
- Rich, velvety mouthfeel
- Vanilla notes on the finish thanks to a bit of aging in their unique oak blend.
For an easy gathering, I love making simple bruschetta. It’s light, refreshing and pairs well with the bold taste of JaM Cab. All you need for this no-fuss recipe is a flatbread, or crispy cracker and your choice of heirloom tomatoes, onion, salt, oregano and olive oil.
Chop your tomatoes, onions and add to a bowl – topping with olive oil and oregano, salt and pepper. Stir and allow to sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before topping each cracker with the mixture. Drizzle more olive oil and top with a light sprinkle of sea salt/pepper.
While you’re enjoying the heirloom bruschetta, be sure to have your JaM Cab poured – always remember to drink responsibly – and get your playlist going.
I realize my playlist is all over the place music taste wise – but that’s what makes it so fun. Sit back, relax and enjoy these last days of summer!
