Cabernet Sauvignon

The Cabernet Sauvignon grape has a very distinct blue skin which contributes to the heavy pigment found in the wine and the lush, elegant burgundy color. Because of the thick skins, the wines are highly tannic and can deal with great amounts of aging and oak and once in bottle, they have great longevity.

The wines are highly aromatic and have violet and cedar characteristics, and distinct flavors of chocolate, mint, and tobacco.
