Premium Block "Los Chamizal" Cabernet Sauvignon

Premium Block "Los Chamizal" Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $30.00 per bottle

Description: Its dark ruby coloring is bright rather than opaque. The aromas announce a fruit forward wine of elegance and complexity above all. Tasters and drinkers alike will notice the intriguing combination of blackberry, melted dark chocolate, mint, vanilla and charred aromas. The palate and flavors are more aggressive, delivering these same elements, but with more force and density. The wine finishes with lingering dark fruit and hints of cedar to lead us into the next sip.

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.
