Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

Our award winning Cabernet Sauvignon is dry and silky with a stirring flavor balance of acidity and tannins. Combine floral hints of rose, black fruit, cinnamon, nutmeg, and olives with complex earthy and smoky flavors for a truly amazing foxy Cab Sauv! Cabernet Sauvignon loves grilled dishes, as the charred nature of the meat mirrors the edge of the tannin in the wine. Red meat in particular is its first love. Everything from burgers and brats to prime rib and grilled game, hearty, sausage dishes, and lamb …and for vegetables, fear not, it pairs well with bitter vegetables like eggplant, arugula or radicchio. As for cheese, the standard rule of ‘matching intensity’ does not apply. Cabernet is best served with mild to moderate cheeses.
