2021 Cabernet Sauvignon, Mis Tres Hijos Vineyard, Red Hills Lake County
Aromas of cherries, plums, and a hint of fine herbs with leathery tannins and a long exquisite finish. Pairs perfectly with Mediterranean dishes.
Cabernet Sauvignon is a natural cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc that occurred in Southern France in the 1800s. It also is a major variety used in red Bordeaux wines. In California, Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted red wine grape. A long-season variety, Cabernet requires ample time to fully ripen, resulting in rich, age worthy wines. It is a fascinating wine to produce, as its various growing locations throughout California, will offer up many unique styles, waiting to be captured by the winemaker.
