"Los Chamizal Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon

"Los Chamizal Vineyard" Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $50.00 per bottle

Description: The intensity of this wine is not necessarily a measure of its girth, but of its complexity. Though surely dark and structured, the wine exudes an array of aromas that are layered and heady. Smooth fresh blackberry aromas, hints of mint and mocha, as well as notes of vanilla, cedar and bacon fat waft off the wine. In the mouth the wine delivers delicious, rich flavors that burst over and layer the tongue. It's a long wine that takes a while to finish after the sip. This is the kind of wine we like to sit with and consider. We hope you will too.

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.
