Beatty Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon

Beatty Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details

Description: Quintessential Beatty Ranch Cabernet is all about concentration of fruit and depth of flavor. This wine embodies those ideas. Aromas of Chocolate, Cherry, and Blueberry are followed by an exceptionally broad and deeply textured palette. The wine literally fills the mouth with flavor. Round and rich, the mountain tannins are almost forgotten, but come through lending balance and structure to the final impression. Not a wine to be trifled with.

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.
