Cheers To International Cabernet Day!

August 27, 2018

 

Cabernet Sauvignon was created in France when chance brought Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc together. This blend went on to become the most frequently planted grape in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon, a Noble Grape, is an international superstar and the most recognized grape in the world from Bordeaux, France to Napa Valley, California. This varietal has a thicker skin than other grapes and thrives well in warm climates, perfect for Texas! It typically produces a full-bodied wine, rich with tannins, carrying a heavy oak flavor, finished off with a blend of spices and cherry. The best Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and firm with great depth and concentration.  

 

 

TASTING NOTES

Fiesta Winery’s 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

Aroma: Cinnamon, freshly chopped bark, black cherry

Taste: Full bodied, rich in Tannins, spicy black cherry pie, with subtle hints of ripe blackberry

Pairing: Goes nicely with pot roast, sausage dishes like red beans and rice, and homemade chili!

 

Fiesta Winery’s new 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is an awesome addition to any wine list. These amazing grapes came from Newsom Family Vineyards, a business that has been dedicated to growing high-quality wine grapes in the Texas High Plains for more than 30 years. Starting with just two acres of Cabernet Sauvignon in the spring of 1986, Newsom Vineyards now spans a vast 150 acres with 19 grape varieties and supplies fruit to over 10 wineries in the state.*

This 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was blended from well-established grapes in a warm climate, creating a full body and warm, baked-cherry notes.The wine was then aged for 18-months in American Oak barrels. This labor of love is a wonderful addition to any wine cellar and a very thoughtful gift for the wine lover in your life!
