Villa Emile

Villa Emile Wine Details
Price: $9.95 per bottle

Description: The 2002 Villa Emile Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from grapes grown in Lodi winegrowing district. The wine opens in the glass with buoyant red raspberry fruit complemented by aromatic notes of cedar, cinnamon and nutmeg. The initial bright berry fruit on the palate soon reveals a well defined wine with hints of oak and spice. Raspberry and nutmeg linger on the finish. This Cabernet is the perfect match for entrees of grilled steak, tomato-based pastas, lamb chops and spicy chili, as well as many full-flavored cheeses.

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.
