Bloom Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Bloom Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $24.99 per bottle

Description: Our flagship wine from the family rows of Jim and Ranee Bloom’s vineyard in Mendocino County, California. Oak tannins blend with cassis and cherry, chocolate and just a hint of tobacco. This cabernet goes well with cheese, red meat dishes and chocolate desserts. Aged 18 months in French and Hungarian Oak, this cabernet will only get better and better cellared and could be aged for up to 10 years. Bloom Vineyards Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has won awards for excellence at local fairs in Western Washington.

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.
