Brilliant black violet color. Aromas of blueberry compote, grilled red apples, sweet mint, tar, crushed juniper in dark chocolate, and green peppercorns with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, interesting, snappy blackberry, black licorice, and melba toast finish with silky tannins and moderate oak flavor. A tasty and satisfying cabernet with great versatility.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is a variety that is the source of some of the world’s most celebrated and longest-lived reds. Grown in many countries, it is most famous in Bordeaux, where it is the principal grape in red Bordeaux as well as in California – especially Napa Valley- where it is labeled by its varietal name.

Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas and flavors of black currant, cassis, black cherry and sometimes plum (in warmer regions or vintages). Quite rich on the palate, the variety is very tannic, giving its wines a bitter edge in their youth, but also providing the wines with great aging potential, with top flight examples drinking well for as long as four or five decades. Given their richness and flavor profile, wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon need to be paired with rich red meats, such as steaks and roasts as well as game.

Besides France and California, other countries with warm growing regions also excel with Cabernet Sauvignon. These include the Maipo and Colchagua Valleys in Chile as well as the Bolgheri district, situated on the coast of Tuscany.
