Cabernet Sauvignon, Estate Bottled

Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Estate Bottled Wine Details
Price: $34.00 per bottle

Description: Our ARGENTO series wines are dedicated to blends from select barrels that we feel best highlight the flavors found in our vineyards. Classic in its delivery of precise currant and black cherry fruit with notes of rich loam and smoky oak, our 2003 Riserva d'Argento Cabernet Sauvignon is equally generous with both direct fruit and firming tannin. Clove, cedar and elegant spice continue the flavor definitions from the Cabernet vineyards of Brutocao to you.

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.
