Price: $27.00 per bottle

Description: Our newest pride and joy! A bright, young cabernet produced from grapes grown on a pristine vineyard on West Dry Creek Road and aged for 24 months in French oak barrels. This ruby colored wine reveals lots of fruit on the palate, dusty oak and a lingering cherry finish with a touch of mint. Drink now or age in your cellar.

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.
