Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $24.00 per bottle

Description: ...comes from the beautiful inland rolling hills of California's Central Coast, where warm days and nights cooled by Pacific breezes allow the fruit long, balanced hang time. This fine handcrafted wine, made in the Bordeaux tradition, brings together deep rich fruit flavors with supple tannins and a spicy but smooth finish. Enjoy with great food and friends.

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.
