About This Wine:
As such. Cabernet Sauvignon often is called the “king of red wine grapes.” This certainly is true in California, where Cabernet and Cabernet-based blends rank among the state’s most prized bottlings vintage after vintage.
The noble grape produces dry, full-flavored wines, and its aging potential can extend a decade, two decades and even longer. Five to nine years is a more typical aging range, and many renditions — like the 2018 Silver Pony California Cab — can be enjoyed upon release.
Research at the University of California at Davis revealed Cabernet Sauvignon to be a cross between the Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. The variety is California’s most widely planted red wine grape with 93,241 acres reported in 2018. Silver Pony taps numerous vineyards in prime growing areas for its Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, then blends to craft a Cabernet cuvee that’s easy to love.
