Broman Cabernet Sauvignon

Broman Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $54.00 per bottle

Description: 1999 was a fabulous growing year, resulting in full, well balanced wines. The Broman Cabernet Sauvignon is certainly no exception. The aroma of this wine is full of ripe, dark berry with a hint of toasty oak and mocha. There are mouth filling ripe blackberries, cassis, black cherry and wild berry flavors accented by a hint of leather and cedar. The tannins are well integrated, and the long, lingering finish leaves you wanting more.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
