Cannonball California Cabernet Sauvigon 2011
|Bottle volume ml||750ml|
|Country of origin||United States|
An exciting revival of a classic style with best characteristics of traditional California and old world Bordeaux. Due to a dry spring the seeds matured nicely, giving the wines great texture. The flavors and aromas are a brilliant expression of varietal character, an expression rarely seen since the 1970’s and is a dramatic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon. It shows the silver lining of this unheralded vintage and was aged 15 months in French oak, 35% new oak.This 2011 will be vibrant and pleasing and will age gracefully for many years.
Aromas Lively and seductive: black and green peppercorns, cassis and wild forest berries, warm spices, minerals, cranberries with hints of dark chocolate and toasted sage.
Palate Echo the racy aromas with toastier spices and fresh berries. It finishes with good acidity, long length and elegance.It will be a great compliment to any grilled steak, braised lamb with herbs.
