Good rainfall during winter, followed by a cool spring and dry summer lead to lower yields in the 2010-2011 vintage. Characterized by healthy fruit with excellent flavor and maturity, the harvest began in April and grapes were hand selected before being crushed. This wine shows the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon. Completely fermented in stainless steel tanks, the emphasis is to maintain the vineyard's character. It has lots of fruit and is extremely balanced.
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.
This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with stewed beef, meat carpaccio, oven-cooked pastries, stuffed cold meat and sausage.
