Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

This wine shows the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon. Totally fermented in stainless steel tanks, the emphasis is to maintain the vineyard's character. It has lots of fruit and is extremely balanced.

Tasting Notes

Dark garnet in color, this Cabernet offers aromas and flavors highlighting red fruits and spices. Bing cherry, red currants and boysenberry fruit aromas persist on the palate. Subtle mint, bay leaf and spice come through in the bright, refreshing finish.

Food Pairing

This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with stewed beef, meat carpaccio, oven-cooked pastries, stuffed cold meat and sausage.
