Winemaker's Notes:

This Cabernet Sauvignon benefits from the maritime influence of California's Central Coast, where the extended growing season yielded a wine that is full in flavor with wonderful balance.

Brass Tacks Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and concentrated, with layers of currant, plum and cherry fruit that is framed by integrated oak. A full-bodied, complex wine with firm tannins, enjoy this California Cab with a juicy steak or grilled pork chops.

Let's get down to brass tacks, shall we? At Brass Tacks, we believe the essence of California wine is the fruit. So our winemaking starts in the vineyard, where we cultivate the unique characteristics of each varietal and vineyard. The result is a wine that isn't over-manipulated, allowing the personality of the fruit to shine through.

brass tacks (noun) - the most fundamental considerations; essentials; realities (usually used in the phrase "get down to brass tacks").
