Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
It is deeply purple in color, opening with huge aromatics of berries and oak spice, becoming gradually more complex and perfumed as it warms in the glass. An aroma this big and powerful promises great things for the wine with time in the bottle. The wine shows a touch of youthful astringency, appropriate for a young wine intended for aging, but the density of its extract is primarily derived from rich and supple tannins. All the dark fruit and abundant stuffing is carried by just enough minerality to keep the wine lively and juicy, and will allow it to develop for a decade or more.
"A fabulous example of this great vintage, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with blue and black fruit, savory herbs, licorice, incense and menthol, all supported by the firm tannins that are one of the hallmarks of the year. The slightly gamy notes typical of this bottling are present, but, at the same time, there is more than enough fruit to balance those elements. This is a decidedly dark, brooding wine, but at the same time, it has more finesse than the 2009. In 2010 the Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of fruit from Red Hen, Crystal Springs, State Lane, Las Piedras and Max. This is a great showing from Stewart and winemaker Paul Hobbs."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
