Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Wine Details
Price: $26.00 per bottle

Description: Showing the bright and pleasing color of fine Claret, this Cabernet Sauvignon embodies the best that our estate vineyard has to offer. Aromas of juicy raspberry and currant are bolstered by the earthy and vanilla notes. In the mouth, the wine bursts with flavor, perfectly balancing the supple tannins of oak aging with the zesty natural acidity of the grape. Fruit flavors linger on the finish, inviting another sip. Twenty-four months of barrel aging mean that this wine is ready to drink now!

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.
