Flora Springs Out Of Sight Cabernet Sauvignon

Flora Springs Out Of Sight Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $85.00 per bottle

Description: This second vintage of the Out-of-Sight Cabernet has extremely ripe, plummy fruit, making it rich and full in the mouth. The violet, floral aromas are followed by flavors of cocoa, coffee and just a hint of pepper to make it interesting. The tannins are apparent in this wine, helping push the ripe fruit through to the finish, which is soft and supple.

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.
