25th Anniversary Celebration Cabernet Sauvignon

25th Anniversary Celebration Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $150.00 per bottle

Description: The wine exhibits smokiness from the heavily toasted barrels and has characteristics of black cherry, cassis, black currants and cocoa. The grapes are from the Rutherford hillside planting of vines and the wine has the soft tannins and flavors of sweet fruit for which Flora Springs is known. Bottled only in magnums, this wine is truly a celebration of the last 25 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.
