Cellar Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Overview

The 2017 Cellar Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, and 9% Sangiovese.  The grapes for this wine were primarily sourced from the Lilli of the Vine and Newsom Vineyard located in the Texas High Plains AVA.

This wine shows traditional Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of blackberry jam, cedar, and red peppers, with a “kiss” of vanilla cream gained through aging in the presence of new French oak.  Medium acidity on the palate is supported with a moderate tannic structure, which just begs to be served with succulent, grilled reds meats and full flavored cheeses.  This wine should reach full maturity by 2022 if properly stored.  Serve Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon in a large wine glass at a cool room temperature (58-64F).
