Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $28.00 per bottle

Description: Our first release of Halter Ranch Estate Cabernet Sauvignon demonstrates why Westside Paso Robles has a growing reputation for world-class wine. Dark ruby-red in color, the wine offers classic cassis aromas with savory cocoa and sweet spice tones. Medium-full on the palate with ripe, intense flavors and well-integrated tannins, it’s an ideal wine for those who enjoy young, vibrant Cabernet Sauvignons with plenty of rich flavor. With proper cellaring, it will gain additional complexity over the next 5-7 years.

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.
