Wine and Dime Episode 62 - Coaching Women Creatives with Cassie Schmidt

In this episode of Wine and Dime, I speak with a fellow wine connoisseur and career coach, Cassie Schmidt. Cassie specializes in coaching women in creative fields to help them be successful entrepreneurs. Cassie shares with us why she chose this specialization, her coaching style, and some great tips for anyone. We also get the chance to really get into our favorite wines a little bit, and that was a very fun conversation. So sit on back, pop open a Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon, and enjoy this episode of Wine and Dime!

WINE PROFILE

Production Notes

Varietal Content: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Petite Sirah, 1% Cabernet Franc; Winemaking: 90% French oak, 10% American oak, 40% New, 60% Neutral

Winemaker Notes

Displaying the lushness and balance that define great Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon, this inviting wine features layers of blackberry and black cherry, along with notes of mocha, star anise and spearmint. On the palate, the juicy, bright fruit flavors are framed by rich, refined tannins that carry the wine to a satisfying finish.

Production

The 2016 growing season began with generous winter rains, followed by a spring and summer marked by moderate temperatures and abundant sunshine. Like several recent vintages, the 2016 harvest came early, delivering exquisite quality grapes. After the modest size crop of 2015, 2016 saw a welcome return to average yields. Overall, the 2016 whites show an ideal combination of lovely richness and excellent natural acidity, while the reds are lush and complex, with beautiful color and concentration.
