Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Estate

Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Wine Details
Price: $50.00 per bottle

Description: A tilted glass of our Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a deep garnet-red color. While vanillin, currant and dark cherry fruit flavors describe this luscious wine, the varietal aromas marry with the vanilla and spice of the barrels giving it a distinctive Cabernet essence. This is one to roll around in your mouth; every sip is unique and infinitely pleasurable. The vanilla and chocolate finish adds to the wine’s fruity characteristics. Quite wonderful now, aging will prove a real treat for the lucky few.

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.
