Tasting Notes:

smooth tannins highlight the powerful berry aromas and deep concentrated dark fruit on the palate. Aged for two years in American oak and one year in the bottle, Cabernet Sauvignon is Ventosa’s premier red varietal, hand harvested and sorted with little wine making intervention.

Winemaker Notes:

Harvested late for bold fruit flavors, signature style of Ventosa Cabernet Sauvignon.  Whole berry fermentation yielded a deeper, more concentrated wine which then was aged exclusively in American oak.

Food Pairing:

Mushrooms, Pork Belly, Brisket, Cabbage, Hot Fudge
