Vineyards in the "heartland" of California gives our Cabernet Sauvignon plenty of ripe berry character. Careful canopy management is key to farming in the Lodi, Sacramento Delta and San Joaquin areas. Cool nighttime temperatures were the hallmark of this vintage, allowing our red varietals to maintain perfect acid structure in conjunction with extended ripening time. Optimal flavors were concentrated in the small berries. This Greystone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon would benefit from a side of grilled meats and vegetables.

California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate. Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
