Winemaker's Notes:

Spicy, woody aromas lead into flavorful berry and plum character in this medium-bodied Cabernet. The fruit flavors and toasty oak aromas blend perfectly in the smooth, soft finish.

Amberhill Cabernet Sauvignon is a nicely balanced, blended red wine using grapes from several regions of California. After fermentation, the wine is placed into oak barrels for up to one year of oak aging. Smooth and flavorful, it is a consistent award winner and a favorite with the wine media and public. The robust flavors pair nicely with grilled meats, sausages, pizza, tomato based pastas, and aged cheeses.
