2014 Sand Point Cabernet Sauvignon
Bright berry aromas move into flavors of fresh cherry and spice from oak aging.
Vibrant in color, our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with an appealing aroma of bright berry. Smooth tannins support the core flavors of fresh cherry and ripe berry, which are intertwined with spice from the oak aging. As a full-bodied wine, it is easy to enjoy for any occasion.

(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.
