Cabernet Sauvignon Stag's Leap Vineyard

Cabernet Sauvignon Stag's Leap Vineyard Wine Details
Price: $54.00 per bottle

Description: Loads of blackberry, cherry and cassis mixed with sage and mineral notes, predominate the nose. In the mouth this wine shows power and intensity with a strong backbone of tannins and acid framed with juicy blackberry and currant fruit flavors. The finish is supple and lingers on and on. An excellent selection from this Stag's Leap Vineyard.

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.
