2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details

Description: This full bodied wine was aged in a combination of French barrels for up to 12 months. Our estate grapes provide excellent length while the Van Ber Vineyard provides that fruit forward nose. Lots of cassis, dark berries, and toasty oak to enjoy in this wine. Well rounded and full palate with a classic Cabernet 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.
