About This Wine

Bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon are some of the most prized wines produced in California.

The grape also is the main ingredient in blends for many of the world’s most famous red wines, including those from the Bordeaux appellation of France. Some renditions, such as the featured bottling from Indian Creek, can be enjoyed as soon as they’re released.

DNA genetic fingerprinting research at the University of California at Davis has revealed Cabernet Sauvignon to be a cross between the Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The variety is California’s most widely planted red winegrape.

In U.S. supermarkets, Cabernet Sauvignon represents about 14 percent of the wine volume sold, according to The Nielsen Company. But you’ll never find Indian Creek Cabernet Sauvignon in a supermarket. It’s crafted in limited quantities, and our wine finders were able to procure an allotment for our club members. That makes it a prized wine, indeed.

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.
