Violet color. Aromas and flavors of wet leather, cocoa powder, dried dates, and red and black currant with a satiny, lively, medium body and a warming, interesting, medium-length finish manifesting notes of rough hewn oak and leather, sour black currant and rhubarb, wild raspberry and raspberry leaf, and baker’s dark chocolate with medium, chewy, barky tannins and moderate oak flavor. Crisp acidity and savory flavors balancing the fruit make this an excellent companion for grilled meats and vegetables.

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.
