Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Reserve Wine Details
Price: $65.00 per bottle

Description: As we pride ourselves on producing wines of exceptional quality and character, we only produce a Vineyard Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon if the vintage year truly warrants the designation. Our last Vineyard Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon designate was 2000. Selecting the best of the vintage for our 100% Cabernet Sauvignon reserve begins with recognizing the fruit potential, then maximizing quality in the cellar.

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.
