Cabernet Sauvignon EG 2018
A Fruity and Light-Body Cab
We finally have what many of you have been waiting for. A brand new Cabernet Sauvignon! Luckily we can assure you the wait was worth it.
This Cab has a myriad of bright red-fruit flavors, including raspberry, strawberry, red cherry, and red plum. This wine is perfect for those who love a fruity profile without being too heavy or sweet.
With a light body and soft tannins, this will be the perfect red to pair with lighter faire that you may normally pair with Barbera or Pinot Noir. Upon opening the bottle and taking that first sip, you will notice this Cab has a mouth watering tartness that gives way to all those delicious fruit flavors. The more you sip and swirl, that zinginess smooths itself out as more and more flavors come peeking through such as vanilla, dark caramel, kirsch, dried cranberry, and blackberry.
A great attribute of this wine is not only it’s culinary versatility, but also that if you are someone who enjoys a nice bite to their reds, you can drink it straight after opening and enjoy that tangy fruit forwardness. Conversely, if you open in advance, swirl, or even decant this bottle, you will have a whole new world of complexity and a smooth “easy drinker,” on your hands. Pair this wine with a variety of meals and snacks including grilled veggies, pork chops, BLT’s, light pastas, and charcuterie platters.
