Forth ALL BOYS Cabernet Sauvignon

Forth ALL BOYS Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: All Boys’ is the happy outcome of the blending of Cabernet grown in the vineyards of our two sons, four grandsons and that of a beautiful neighboring vineyard owned by five brothers. Bright, bountiful berries and cherries, toasty oak, and supple tannins combine to create a delightfully accessible Cabernet. Here’s to these boys, and all boys, and the exuberant energies, deep soul and joyful experience of play they bring to every endeavor!

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.
