LOWER LAKE, Calif. – Six Sigma Winery's 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon recently won a gold medal at the 2012 American Fine Wine Competition held in Boca Raton, Fla.
A panel of 24 judges, including sommeliers and wine writers, tasted their way through 660 wines from across the United States.
In order to win a gold medal each judge must agree that the wine is worthy of this prestigious honor.
Kaj and Else Ahlmann are very excited that their 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon has been awarded yet another medal.
“This is the same wine that was selected as the best Cabernet Sauvignon at the People's Choice Awards held in Lake County last November,” said Kaj Ahlmann. “This recognition that the Cabernet has received as well as the awards and accolades of our entire portfolio makes all of our hard work worthwhile.”
“Six Sigma wines have been very well received in the greater Bay Area,” said Walt Campbell, direct-to-trade manager. “Our wines are available in many restaurants in Napa Valley. To be able to share our wines with Napa Valley and successfully compete with the most famous wine region in the world says a lot about the quality of our wines.”
Winning a gold medal in Florida demonstrates a demand for Lake County wines, not only in California but nationwide, the company said.
