    Winemaker Notes

    Very approachable Cabernet Sauvignon with blackberry and plum notes with vanilla and spice finish from the oak. Medium red color with good acidity and smooth tannins.

    Serve at room temperature with herb rubbed rotisserie chicken, meatloaf or barbecued steaks.

    Not made for long-term aging; will evolve and gain complexity for four to six years when stored at between 55ºF to 60ºF

    Baron Herzog, California
    2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
    The Baron Herzog brand is known for outstanding variety and value. With a history of reliable quality dating back to 1985, Baron Herzog wines offer something for every palate. They trace their winemaking origins back nine generations, to Phillip Herzog, who made wine in Slovakia for the Austro-Hungarian court more than a century ago. Phillip’s wines were so appreciated by Emperor Franz-Josef that the emperor made Phillip a baron. Baron Herzog wines, a line of premium yet moderately priced California varietals, are named to commemorate that honor. These award-winning wines are handcrafted by winemaker Joe Hurliman for immediate consumption or short-term aging, and are widely available nationwide.

    Made from the finest grapes from some of California’s most respected vineyards, Herzog Wine Cellars Special Reserve wines constitute the winery’s flagship ultra-premium wines. The relentless quest to make the best wines possible was the major motivation behind the construction of the Herzog Wine Cellars winery in Oxnard. Designed with small-lot winemaking in mind, Winemaker Joe Hurliman has complete control starting from the growing season. The Reserve line includes several varietals and production of these wines is extremely limited, with fewer than 10,000 cases bottled annually. Members of the Herzog Cellar Club receive quarterly shipments of these Special Reserve wines that have been hand-selected by Winemaker Joe Hurliman. These wines consistently receive high scores and ratings from major critics and wine publications, truly making this brand the winery’s flagship line of wines.

    Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

    Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    View all wine

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

    In the Glass

    High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

    Sommelier Secrets

    Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
