About This Wine
Move over, France. You have competition.
Historically, France is the most revered of all countries when it comes to wine production. There’s sparkling wine from the Champagne region, fine Pinot Noir from Burgundy, refreshing rosés from Provence and, of course, Cabernet Sauvignon-based cuvees from Bordeaux.
But once California vineyard plantings increased in the 1970s and ’80s, things changed. Specific regions of the Golden State were matched up with specific varieties of wine, and today California is recognized as one of the premier wine producers in the world — right up there with France.
Bramble Ridge Winery sources grapes for its Cabernet Sauvignon from a number of top growers. Then, through extensive blending trials, it crafts a Cabernet that is true to the variety, able to age gracefully for several years, and can be served with a wide array of delicacies, from rack of lamb to the finest cuts of steak.
