CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climates from Canada's Okanagan Valley to Lebanon's Beqaa Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon became internationally recognized through its prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. From France, the grape spread across Europe and to the New World where it found new homes in places like California's Santa Cruz Mountains, Napa Valley, New Zealand's Hawkes Bay, Australia's Margaret River and Coonawarra regions and Chile's Maipo Valley and Colchagua. The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's aging potential. In cooler climates, Cabernet Sauvignon tends to produce wines with blackcurrant notes that can be accompanied by green bell pepper notes, mint and cedar which will all become more pronounced as the wine ages. In more moderate climates the blackcurrant notes are often seen with black cherry and black olives notes while in very hot climates the current flavors can veer towards the over-ripe and "jammy" side.

  1. NELLCOTE 2017 ROSE NAPA VALLEY 750mL

    Item #: i_206930
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Intentionally crafted from Malbec and Syrah, the grapes for Nellcote's impeccably dry Rose were meticulously farmed on Bald Mountan Ranch atop Mount Veeder, and only 170 cases were produced.

    Here, vivid aromas bring to mind pomegranate, tart cherry, and ripe citrus alongside notes of guava, orange bitters, and the delicate, lingering suggestion of white tea and roses. The wine is bright and focused on the palate, with a vibrant acidity toning and lifting the elegant red fruit flavors. With an ethereal finish that lasts, this is a true wine lover's Rose with a South of France soul and a Napa Valley attitude.
