Black ruby color. Aromas and flavors of cassis-fig tart a la mode, chocolate caramel nut brownie, and cedar pencil with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a silky, stimulating, medium-long finish with notes of honeyed dried cherries and berries and buttery spiced nuts with light oak flavor. A supple and sensuous Napa Cabernet with rich flavor and chewy, warm goodness.

Bordeaux Varietal Red

Wine Glass Cabernet.jpg
Serve in a Cabernet Wine Glass
A Bordeaux varietal red is made from as many as five approved grapes in the region: primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc with lesser amounts of Petit Verdot and Malbec. These wines can have one, two or even all five in the blend; this assembly of varietal produced wines of greater complexity with various fruit flavors, tannin levels, color and spice.

These Bordeaux varietal reds range from lighter-bodied examples simply designated as Bordeaux or Bordeaux Superieur, which are meant for consumption within their first three to five years to the classified growths, owned by wealthy Bordelaise, who craft very expensive wines that can age for several decades.
