Carneros is not well-known for its Cabernet Sauvignon. The general belief is that this grape needs warmer temperatures to fully ripen. The fact is the Truchard Vineyards has been growing Cabernet in the cooler Carneros climate for nearly 30 years, with great success. The vines are planted on the warmer, southwest facing slopes for maximum sun exposure. The result is a big wine, with tremendous color and structure. Cabernet Franc is blended in to provide added softness and complexity.

Region Description

(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.
