TASTING NOTES: Full-bodied with intense aromas of black cherries, our Cabernet Sauvignon has been aged in French oak barrels for 14 months to achieve a structure worthy of several years of cellar life. Excellent with red meat dishes, pork, rack of lamb and roast duck.
Serve at room temperature.
THE GRAPE: Cabernet Sauvignon is another one of the pillar grapes of wine making, one of the most grown and popular red varieties, main component of Bordeaux wine. It's a very intense and structured wine...one of those grapes that you can recognize from a distance for its distinctly small grape berry. Hence the proportion of skin and seed to overall volume of berry is very high, loading it with color and tannins.
VINTNER'S NOTE: Although we don't grow Cabernet, which requires a very long growing season, we procure grapes from trusted vineyards in California and transport them at controlled low temperature for processing at the vineyard.
After fermentation and extensive cold maceration, the vine spends a minimum of 14 months in French and American oak barrels.
