Missionary Cabernet Sauvignon

Missionary Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $25.69 per bottle

Description: Everyone has their position. Missionary is one of ours. Yes, simple and straightforward... and always satisfying. The 100% oak aging offers good structure and subtle tannins followed by full aromas and flavors of ripe cherries and blackberry with a hint of anise. This Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent companion to roast pork or lamb during the main course or for dessert try it with a good Stilton.

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.
