Cabernet Sauvignon

Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $60.00 per bottle

Description: This Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon represents our best efforts in site selection, vineyard cultivation, and winemaking craftsmanship. Substantial tannins, from both new oak and small, intensely flavored berries will require several years to soften, but the vibrant fruit will reward the patient wine lover. I find flavors of candied currants and cherries supported by oak flavors of vanilla and caramel. What I like best is the incredible depth of flavors the wine displays.

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.
