Helena Montana Cabernet Sauvignon

Helena Montana Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $80.00 per bottle

Description: "The Helena Montana Vineyard 2002 vintage is a deep garnet color that veers into purple. The fruit is concentrated and bright with an initial raspberry fragrance followed by black pepper, spice and cedar. Elegant tannins and velvety mouth feel characterize this bold and complex Cabernet Sauvignon with hints of black currant, chocolate and coffee on a very long finish. Enjoyment is enhanced by decanting." - Pierre Seillan, Vigneron/Winemaker

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.
