2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve



90 Points, Wine Enthusiast

Our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2020 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 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon is smooth and beautifully balanced and while it’s wonderful in the glass right now, will nicely reward a few years of patient cellaring. On the nose, it displays rich red berry fruit, blackberry, cassis, and cocoa, with a touch of spice along with aromas of star anise, and vanilla. The flavors match the aromas along with notes of black cherry, red currant, leather, and a long vanillin-oak laden finish. Enjoy with a hearty bowl of beef stew and fresh bread, or enjoy a glass by itself, seated in front of a warm, cozy fire.
