About This Wine

Wine drinkers aren’t the only folks who love Cabernet Sauvignon. Growers love it, too.

Cabernet berries are small and spherical with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage, and able to withstand some autumn rains with little damage. It is a mid- to late-season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal, have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.

The best growing sites for producing quality wines from Cabernet grapes are in moderately warm, semi-arid regions that provide a long growing season on well-drained, not-too-fertile soils. Vineyards in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley, much of the Napa Valley, and around the Paso Robles area of California’s Central Coast have consistently produced the highest-rated California examples.

In fact, those were among the sources of fruit for this featured Cabernet from Willow Springs. The combination of growing areas and complementary varieties makes this a wine that’s easy to love.

About Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep color and richness with the potential to age a long time, and better still if aged in oak before bottling. Classic flavors blackcurrant, plum, cherry and spice. The most popular varietal of red wine in America.

    I was very impressed with how balanced and drinkable this wine was. It was light yet very flavorful. Perfectly balanced for my palate.

    Medium bodied, little dry. Touch of plum, berry - a silky soapy wine, may do better slightly chilled.

    Nice oaky aroma. Very dry with tobacco and leather notes more than fruit. Went great with my grilled steak!
