Groomed to be a super-premium wine cloaked in a premium bottle, Piattelli Premium Cabernet Sauvignon has the
smooth, fruit-forward flavor of grapes from our Uco Valley vineyard. The idyllic characteristics of this environment
bring our wines to perfection much earlier than wines made from grapes grown in regions with shorter seasons.
Opaque crimson in color, Premium Cabernet's fragrant bouquet of cola, sweet blueberries, and dried plums
evolves into a medium-bodied, chocolate and vanilla flavor that lingers with a balanced tannin bull and finishes with
(cab er nay saw vee nyon)—This highly adaptable grape grows almost anywhere it is relatively warm, but the best wines come from the Burgundy region of France (where it is a noble variety), California, and Australia. It became famous through the red wines of the Médoc district of Bordeaux and is now grown in Washington, southern France, Italy, Australia, South Africa, Chile, and Argentina. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes make wines that are high in tannin and medium- to full-bodied. Usually identified as having black currant or cassis flavors, the grape can also possess vegetal tones when the grapes are less than ideally ripe. The best wines are rich and firm with great depth, and are often aged for fifteen years or more. Because it is highly tannic, Cabernet Sauvignon is often blended with other less-tannic grapes such as Merlot.
