Bugay Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Incline One-nine’

Bugay Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve ‘Incline One-nine’ Wine Details
Price: $89.00 per bottle

Description: This rare bottling is produced from a Clone 15 selection of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in a unique block of our mountain vineyard. The slope in this location is a steep 19 degrees. The rocky volcanic conditions, combined with the extreme angle, provide excellent drainage and sun exposure. Crops tend to be no more than 2 tons per acre although they are grown on vigorous rootstock. This wine is intense! The flavors are rich and concentrated revealing black fruits, roasted meat, earth, and a hint of anise. Aged for 29 months in the finest French oak barrels; this huge, complex wine will evolve for many years with proper cellaring.

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.
