About This Wine

Great Cabernet Sauvignon wines begin in the vineyard.

"Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small and spherical with black, thick and very tough skin,” notes writer Jim LaMar. “This toughness makes the grapes… 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.”

It’s certainly the red wine king of California, rising to superstar status during the last two decades of the 20th century with a string of world-class wines that continues to this day. The variety is grown in a number of areas in the Golden State, and Ashfield Cellars works with several growers each year in crafting its Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2015 vintage is another winner, brimming with fruit flavor and perfectly balanced so it does not require aging in order to derive maximum enjoyment.

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.

    Quite drinkable. A bit on the sweet side for me, but I enjoy a drier red in general. Very nice aroma.
