"Sophia's Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon

"Sophia's Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $36.00 per bottle

Description: A big and bold Cabernet worthy of the vineyard designation. These vines were planted the same day our daughter Sophia was born and we couldn't be happier with the outcome of this first vintage. Enjoy now in its youth or lay it down in the cellar and be rewarded with a truly great Cabernet!

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.
