Harvested from our estate Carneros vineyards, the Carneros Cabernet Sauvignon opens with scents of cedar, tobacco and dark ripe berry fruit. On the palate, this wine shows great balance, with forward blackberry fruit and subtle notes of chocolate. Through the mid-palate it exhibits softer flavors of vanilla and oak supported by pleasantly smooth tannins. Hints of mint and eucalyptus grace the lengthy finish.
The fullbodied flavors of this Cabernet Sauvignon make it a wonderful accompaniment to many full flavored foods. Try it with roasted meats, eggplant parmesan, wild game or rich pasta dishes.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
This small section of Northern California is situated at the base of both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Carneros has made its reputation with its Pinot Noirs, which are filled with strawberry, cherry, spice, and chocolate, and are very rich and seductive. Chardonnay is also excellent, very buttery but not too fat.
