Cabernet Hommage Artist Series

Cabernet Hommage Artist Series Reserve Wine Details
Price: $60.00 per bottle

Description: The 2000 Hommage Cabernet Sauvignon offers a dark and powerful black currant and cassis fruit core. Chocolate, tobacco and fig notes underlay this, along with the elements of toasted oak, sage, cigar box, raisin and mint. As a hallmark of the 2000 vintage, the wine is broad and expressive at a younger age, with a sweet, fleshy entry, supple and well textured mouthfeel, and a full tannin structure leading to a persistent finish.

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.
