RUTHERFORD - ESTATE Cabernet Sauvignon

RUTHERFORD - ESTATE Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details

Description: "Deep red color with purple notes, aroma of ripe red plums, blueberry, chocolate covered cherries and spice. An explosion of fruit on the palate, very rich with more plum, blueberry and loads of spice. This wine finishes with bright red raspberry notes. There is a profound richness throughout the mouth that suggests 10 plus years of aging potential, although the fresh fruit says drink now. " Marco DiGiulio

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.
