2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
Two Months New French Oak
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Sirah
The Kautz Family grows Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in several of Lodi’s sub-appellations as well as the Calaveras County growing region of the Sierra Foothills. These different locations provide diverse soils and climate that, when combined, create a more complex wine than one region alone.
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and complex, but still easily approachable. Its dark cherry and toasted oak aromas tantalize the taste buds that will savor juicy black currant, raspberry and dark cherry flavors. This luscious, well-balanced, wine has a sweet middle palate that finishes with a lovely toasty oak component.
Food Pairing Notes
Often referred to as the "King of Wines", Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic pairing partner for a variety of roasted, broiled or barbequed beef dishes. Its magnificent flavor and structure also works well with lamb, wild game such as venison and wild boar, hearty vegetarian dishes, as well as strong cheeses.
Wine of the Month sales price not combinable with other discounts.
