Price: $12.00 per bottle

Description: We sourced the fruit for this fabulous wine from the Tutt Vineyard, owned by a personal friend of the Arciero family, whose ranch in southeastern San Luis Obispo county is ideal for ripe, fullbodied Cabernet. Intense, bright aromas of cherry and strawberry are complimented by spicy notes of ginger and vanilla. With big flavors of blackberry and cocoa, the finish is lush and satisfying. Serve with barbecued beef or pork ribs. Enjoy now or age for up to six 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.
