On December 22, 2014 the sun moved out of Sagittarius and into the sign of Capricorn. Not only is this the first day of Capricorn, but it is also the winter solstice, the darkest day of the year.
Capricorn is a sign associated with ambition, goals, patience, hard work, and strategy. It is the 10th sign of the zodiac, ruled by the planet of structure and discipline, Saturn. As the ultimate task master planet, Saturn will help you set a realistic plan to achieving your personal greatness.
Capricorn is represented by the Sea Goat - half goat, half fish. The Sea Goat is able to climb any mountain or cross any sea. For instance, a goat has the ability to stand frozen still perched on a mountain cliff for hours, carefully contemplating the next move, until in one instant it gracefully jumps to the next position, landing perfectly on rock the size of the quarter. This is symbolic of Capricorn's ability to achieve their goals through thoughtful consideration and strategic planning, no matter how long it may take.
Since Capricorn is ruled by the element of earth, we handcrafted a full bodied red wine for their sign, a Cabernet Sauvignon, handcrafted with grapes from the Riechel Mountains of Alexander Valley in Sonoma, located 2500 feet above sea level. This wine is earthy, tannic, dry, and full of rich dark fruit flavors.
