Jake's Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Jake's Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $110.00 per bottle

Description: Robert Parker described our 2004 Jake's Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon as having: “promising notes of sweet vanilla, interrupted with black currants, cedar, licorice, and damp earth.” All our Jake’s Creek wines need a lot of time to develop. Parker said of the ’03 when first tasting it in October of 2005: “If the tannin becomes better assimilated look for the score (90 pts) to rise significantly.” By the end of 2006, Jake’s Creek had garnered scores of 93 and 95, and is still developing layers and layers of intense flavor.

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.
