Located at 2400 ft. above sea level, these grapes were estate- grown at our Hay Station Ranch vineyard where warm days are cooled by the evening mountain air. The unique soil of decomposed granite mixed with volcanic sediment and red clay produce a wonderful mineral component. Grapes have been grown in the Sierra Foothills for 150 years.
Seductive and full-bodied, our Reserve 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon exudes aromas of fresh berries, black currants and black cherries that are laced with eucalyptus, cedar and mint. Big and powerful, yet elegant, this Cabernet exhibits flavors of sweet dark blackberry and plum with soft, creamy vanilla that plays well with the unique mineral qualities found only in wines produced in the Sierra Foothills.
Food Pairing Notes
Our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic for strong flavored foods including grilled meats, lamb chops as well as strong flavored cheeses. It’s also an excellent choice for chocolate desserts such as a molten chocolate cake, bittersweet chocolate mousse or a simple plate of homemade fudge.
