Cabernet Sauvignon

A Cabernet Sauvignon bred on the vine and in the winery for early approachability, the wine nevertheless evolves in bottle to repay patience in its consumption. Because of its vivid fruit and moderate concentration of tannins, its food pairing range is broader than expected, while still giving great satisfaction especially with rich red meats and game.

We were fortunate to enjoy a fine growing season in 2017. This 20th consecutive harvest under our viticulturist Fernando Franco rewarded us with a beautiful crop. The season started with an early bud-break followed by ideal gentle Spring rains, which supported a good bloom for the clusters. The early Summer was warm, although never becoming hot, and the grapes ripened with good speed. We started harvesting in perfect conditions with Moscato on August 8th, and finished on October 8th  with Cabernet Sauvignon. All varietals showed great character, making this harvest reminiscent in style to 2007 and 2014, among the best we have experienced.
