In honor of Halloween, Jordan Winery’s Star Wars parody Cab Wars shows the conflict between Darth Tannin (Darth Vader) and Oak Maul (Darth Maul) fighting to bring more American oak to the wine galaxy. The Wine Republic isn’t about to let that happen.
It is a period of conflict between California’s first growths. The rise of a Malolactic Empire has gained great power. And they worship oaky wines. Very oaky wines. Darth Tannin and Oak Maul, sworn enemies of fruit, and their legions of American oak warriors have brought a disturbance to the Force of Cabernet winemaking.
Darth Tannin is pursuing the defenders of balanced winemaking to ensure that excessive use of oak and over-manipulation in the cellar rule the wine galaxy. Fruit or tannin—which is the true backbone of a great Cabernet Sauvignon? The Empire and the Wine Republic will now decide.
