Cabernet Sauvignon McFadden Vineyard - Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon McFadden Vineyard - Napa Valley Wine Details

Description: This lively Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the tiny 2 acre McFadden Vineyard in the Soda Canyon Area of Napa Valley. This delightfully bright 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is fruit driven from nose to palate, exuding aromas and flavors of ripe berries and candied fruits with well-integrated notes of toasty vanilla spice.

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.
