Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $17.00 per bottle

Description: Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grow extremely well in our Napa Valley vineyards where the fuit fully matures and displays complex flavors and balance. The grapes were picked by hand in September and October 2001 and gently made into wine. Our Cabernet Sauvignon wine was aged in small oak barrels to enhance the fruit flavors and to lengthen the smooth finish.

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.
