Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This Cabernet Sauvignon is true to its varietal character. The emphasis is placed on representing the variety and terroir, which is why no use of wood was employed in making this wine. Fruity and balanced, this wine is well structured and a perfect accompaniment for main dishes.

About the Vineyard

The climate during season 2016-2017 was not typical compared to previous years.  All of our wines developed very well, ending up fresh and with good natural acidity.  In general, we will get lower yields but high-quality wines, representative of the climate conditions, origin and variety.

Tasting Notes

A bright ruby red color with aromas of young red fruit, predominately cherry and raspberry, highlighted by touches of pepper and mint. On the palate the wine is soft with persistent tannins, high acidity and a long finish.

Food Pairing

For its varietal characteristics it is an excellent wine to accompany simple dishes such as pork chops, spicy preparations of medium-high level or cold deli, including salame and semi-hard cheeses.
