Winemaker's Notes

Color: Rich purple red color.

Nose: Expressive red fruit notes, layered by spices and sweet notes from the oak.

Palate: Smooth tannins but showing a good structure and well balanced acidity. Nice and pleasant finish.

Pairing: Serve from 16° C (60° F) to 18° C (64° F). The ideal companion for pastas, pork and grilled red meat.

Critical Acclaim

"Bargain hunters should stalk this toasty, firm, well-made Cab because there aren't many better in the price range. The palate features pure dark cherry and cassis flavors, while the structure is tight but not hard. Finishes with coffee and sweet, ripe tannins. Drink now and all the way through 2008."

Wow, after this winter down in Florida I was working with my wine guy and was plain tiered of the wine I was drinking. He asked me what region did I want to try and I said South African, he suggested Casa Cabernet Sauvignon 2008. I loved it, smooth, warm and soft oak sweet. Thank-you! Love!! Of course heading into a hot' summer can you give me one of your great wine's that will fit my climate?

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
