Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Wine Details
Price: $60.00 per bottle

Description: This premier release of Mi Sueño Cellars’ Cabernet Sauvignon was worth the wait. Indicative of the Terroir of the Coombsville area of Napa, this wine exhibits characteristics of currants, chocolate, licorice, with an unmistakable earthiness that is reminiscent of wines from Bordeaux. With big, ripe, chewy tannins this wine is delightful now, but can be aged for 10-15 years if desired. Subtle oak compliments the richness of this wine and its full body and intense deep purple color are memorable. This wine is sure to please even the most scrupulous Cabernet drinker.

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.
