Delta Cabernet

Delta Cabernet Reserve Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown in the rich, dark, sandy soil on our Delta island ranch. The island is surrounded by rivers and located between San Francisco and Lodi. : Because of our warm California sun and cool breezes from the San Francisco bay, Ehlers Family Winery is able to grow premium grapes for the creation of our rich Delta Cabernet Sauvignon. So the next time you’re craving a cabernet full of fruit, look for the label with the yellow delta cab.

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.
