Monterey County Cabernet Sauvignon

Monterey County Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: This wine is best described by the word 'fresh!' It is young, vibrant and full of life with abundant blueberry & cocoa aromas and flavors, with a fresh ground white pepper accent. It exudes the wonderful flavors of fresh picked grapes with the complexity of dark fruits, rich mouth feel and velvety tannins. It is complex, yet so very approachable...tasting great today...but easily aged for years.

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.
