Hahn Estates Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon

Hahn Estates Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $12.00 per bottle

Description: Considerably broad and rich. The wine opens with cedar and raspberry fruit on the nose. Rich and mouthfilling with flavors of blueberry, cherry, mint, and chocolate. Seriously silky tannins wrap around the tongue while a considerable amount of cool climate acidity keeps the flavors lively through the finish. Pairing this wine with steak has got to be one of those matches made in heaven. Try with charcoal grilled rib eye and grilled corn on the cob, braised beef short ribs with roasted potatoes, or if you can get it, buffalo burgers with a tangy BBQ sauce.

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.
