Hagafen Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
This intensely inky-colored Cabernet Sauvignon wine is grown in the well-drained, stoney and iron-rich soils of the Weir Family Vineyard along the Silverado Trail, one mile south of the famed Stags' Leap appellation and ten yards from the Oak Knoll District, the Valley's newest sub-appellation. The rich, spicy nose of baker's chocolate and black cherry compliments its brooding black licorice, black cherry and cranberry on the palate. The addition of 12% Cabernet Franc enhances the complexity of the wine, as well as adding to Hagafen's trademark robust and silky mid-palate.
Aged for 19 months in small French and American oak cooperage, this Cabernet Sauvignon will flourish with bottle age.
Hagafen Cellars Winery
Hagafen Cellars is located in the Napa Valley, in the heart of California's premier wine grape region. Owned and operated by Irit and Ernie Weir, the winery was founded in 1979. The first vintage released commercially was harvested in 1980. In the ensuing 20 years, we have grown from a small partnership producing wine with grapes from Winery Lake Vineyard, then owned by Rene DiRosa, to a well-established wine company whose wines are distributed throughout North America and overseas. Our wines have been served on numerous occasions at the White House to visiting foreign dignitaries. In November 1999, we broke ground for our new winery on the Silverado Trail. Hagafen Cellars currently produces 7,000 cases of premium table wines each year. View all Hagafen Cellars WinesIt's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California." A country into itself in the wine world, California makes enough varieties and styles to match many European wine countries. It produces a diverse range of wines that span the quality spectrum.
