2002 Cabernet Sauvignon

2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $34.00 per bottle

Description: This wine was just released November first and it is going fast! Having been out of Cabernet for a full year now, we are delighted to have this wine back in the tasting room, even if just for a short time. Pretty, silky, rich and delicious. This is the follow-up to our first release, and we think you will enjoy it even more. Seven Hills Vineyard and Conner Lee, which were significant in the 2001 release, are blended with old vines from Sagemoor and our first harvest of Cabernet from our estate vineyard Heather Hill. These outstanding fruit sources combine to make a stunning wine that is stylish, elegant, and pure. The nose is loaded with dense, dark blackberry fruit, cassis, sweet wood and shaved chocolate. The continuity from nose to palate is seamless. It is rich, intense and superbly balanced with excellent depth and length.

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.
