2011 Cabernet Sauvignon


Our 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is made from Estate Grown grapes and blended with just a touch of Petit Verdot and Syrah.  Aromatic on the nose with those wonderful traditional Cab flavors of black cherries/black currents on the tongue. A nicely balanced wine that lingers on the finish. The end result is a big, bold, beautiful wine that is rich and complex.

Varietal Fun Facts:  Way way back in the 1600s a natural crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc started what has evolved into the Cabernet Sauvignon that we know today.  Cabernet Sauvignon is now grown throughout the world in a variety of environments and viticultural styles.  Cabernet Sauvignon tends to produce complex wines with flavors that can range from violets, graphite and tobacco to black cherry, licorice and black pepper.
