Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $24.00 per bottle

Description: Our Cabernet Sauvignon has its roots in the Walla Walla Valley foothills of Pepperbridge Vineyard, world famous for producing succulent fruit. We handcrafted and cellar-aged this fine wine to perfection in French oak barrels. You’ll find hints of currant, and blackberry riding on subtle tannins and soft oak undertones. The smooth and fruity flavors are sure to enhance any dining experience, but enjoy this wine on any occasion. All of our 2002 wines are barrel aged (French oak barrels) over 16 months. Their best flavors will be enjoyed after July 04, and may be cellared out to five or six years, and possibly beyond.

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.
