Keever Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Keever Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $68.00 per bottle

Description: Our winemaker, Celia Welch Masyczek, describes it like this: ““Intensely dark-colored, initial aromas of the 2004 Keever Cabernet Sauvignon are very fruit-centered, with dark plum and blackberry notes most pronounced, accompanied by raspberry, mocha and vanilla. As the aromas evolve and intensify with time in the glass, notes of anise and tea also come forward. The palate is creamy at entry, and shows a burst of fresh fruit at the mid-palate. The fruit lingers at the finish, as does the creamy texture of the wine.”

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.
