About This Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings and blends are among the most prized wines produced in California.

The 2011 Iron Rock Cabernet falls into the latter category. The Iron Rock vintner begins with a base of “rock-solid” Cabernet fruit, then “irons out” the tannins by blending in other red varieties. The result is a cuvee that’s smooth and supple — much like Merlot — yet retains the body and personality of Cabernet.

Cabernet Sauvignon has been referred to as the king of red wine grapes, and it’s easy to understand why. Whether made as a 100% varietal wine or blended, a la Iron Rock’s 2011 vintage, it makes expressive wines that can be enjoyed with hearty foods such as steaks or stews.

Well-made Cabs also make wonderful sipping wines — elixirs that can be savored with a good book, your favorite DVD... or a significant other. So pour a glass of Iron Rock Cab, and reward yourself.

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.

    Beautiful gem-quality color, a deep crimson translucence. Fine tannins and a very nice taste. It went well with my bouillabaisse.

    Leans towards the "grapey" side

    Good rich flavor and smell, well aged with no after taste and very smooth. Great sipping wine that I really enjoyed.
