Jones Family Cabernet -

Jones Family Cabernet - Wine Details

Description: A big wine from a high extraction vintage. The aromas are incredibly open and inviting. Super concentrated black cherry and berry fruit with cedar and sage notes. Volcanic soil shows through with big broad intense spiciness and warmth. Silky in the mouth with light dusty tannins throughout. Oak is used here as an accent lending some toasty, vanilla flavors as well. A rich and complex wine from a blockbuster vintage.

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.
