York Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

York Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $25.00 per bottle

Description: Follow your nose to the Rustic One's kitchen, where a nicely seared steak is merrily roasting on the grill, continuing on wandering paths across the earthen forest floor of oak leaf mulch and mushrooms just after the rain, not forgetting to stop in the cozy confines of the saddle shed for a brief respite and flitting dreams of black currants, cassis, cedar, and the smell of a fresh cigar box.

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.
