Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $80.00 per bottle

Description: Typical black fruit nose immediately recognizable from our Pritchard Hill vineyards. Black cherry, cassis, black plums, black raspberry liquor intermingle with earthy, truffle, and cigar box notes. An opaque, dense wine that will not allow you to view the bottom of your glass. It’s a seamless, mouth filling wine from the first taste. You will want to drink all you have purchased now. Please save a few bottles, as it will certainly improve over the years.

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.
