Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Vintners Blend Cabernet Sauvignon is a lovely balance of Cabernet, cassis-like fruit mingled with an oak spiciness, and earthy complexity. It is fresh, bright and pleasing to the nose. In the mouth, it is balanced, flavorful and has a long finish that is never heavy or cloying. This is the perfect wine for food and will make a pleasing accompaniment to your everyday meal. Please enjoy this wine on a regular basis. Make it your "house Cabernet" for it will surely please both you and your guests. This is a delicious wine at a great price.

About Ravenswood:

Fueled initially by the inspiration and winemaking skills of Joel Peterson, aided and abetted by his business partner W. Reed Foster, Ravenswood winery has been dedicated to top quality, hand-crafted wine since the first crush in 1976. Every Ravenswood wine carries a unique vintage and vineyard identity in addition to the intense powerful – gothic – character with which the winery has come to be associated.

A key to Ravenswood’s success is our long-standing relationships with over 60 independent grape growers. Vineyards are chosen for their location, age, yield and special flavor characteristics. At Ravenswood, we are devoted to working with growers who share our philosophy about high quality.

Ravenswood Vineyard Designate wines are made employing what winemaker Joel Peterson refers to as “stubborn and impractical” Old World enological practices. Wines are fermented in small wooden tanks using wild, natural yeasts and punched down by hand three to five times per day. The wines are characterized by intense, spicy aromas supported by rich, berry flavors and long, clean finishes.
