2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

$55.00

Overview

This wine is currently exclusively available to Reserve Circle Members.

Our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2017 vintage is a special wine for us. Designated for our Reserve Circle members, it is a tribute to the early winegrowing days of our region. Cabernet was one of the first varieties planted in the Santa Clara Valley well before the Civil War. At Sarah's, we take pride in helping to recall and reestablish the Valley's reputation for growing great Cabernet Sauvignon. 

 

Tasting Notes

This 2016 Cabernet is beautifully balanced - it is showing well now but will nicely reward a few years of patient cellaring. On the nose, it displays notes of bright red and black berry fruit, dark cherry, and raspberry, with a touch of floral and spice; there are also aromas of cinnamon, star anise, and vanilla. The flavors mirror the aromas with deep cherry/berry fruit, red currant, a touch of white pepper, leather, and a long vanillin-oak laden finish. For pairings, think a ribeye with gorgonzola or a hearty bowl of beef stew. Or just enjoy by itself, seated in front of a warm fire on a chilly winter evening.
