TOR Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Cimarossa Vineyard

TOR Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Cimarossa Vineyard Wine Details
Price: $75.00 per bottle

Description: This vintage shows a dense purple color and great saturation at the core. Aromatically, this wine simply soars. Cimarossa is loaded with acacia flower, graphite, chocolate and subtle sweet oak. On the palate it gives up a deceptively sweet and rich entry that masks the grip that comes from the Howell Mountain fruit. This wine displays blueberry, espresso, tri-tip, pencil shavings and cedar. The finish on this it tremendously long, seamless and shows a hint of mint as it finally tails off.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
