    Winemaker Notes

    Attractive, relatively deep pink colour, almost rounded to red, but with some elegant blue tints. Long legs indicating good vinous structure.

    On the nose, full, but refreshing rosé nose. Good clean intense, mature red fruit, with strawberries and raspberries combining with more tropical notes of pineapple, and an elegant citrus touch of grapefruit. There are also hints of fresh herbs and a final hint of mandarin peel. The palate is bright and lively, fruit balancing freshness and a pleasant fullness. It is a full bodied, warm rosé but with a fresh red summer fruit elegance creating a delicate, appealing wine of great character.

    Fra Guerau, , Spain
    Fra Guerau
    800 years ago, in a time of change and shadows, after the Crusades and pilgrim travels of the Mediterranean, the Orient, old Greece, Germany, Rome Metropolis, and the land of the Francs, the monk Guerau Miquel came to Montsant in the north east of Spain.

    He was known to be a man with a Saints' gifts and that he healed Queen Sança from her illness by his sole presence in the room. As a gift from the king and queen he got a piece of land where he constructed two chapels in honor of Santa Maria and Sant Bartomeu. Fra Guerau was a good man, an anchorite who lived his quiet life in a cave in the Valley of Silence, and dedicated himself to spirituality.

    The wine Fra Guerau is named after this monk Guerau Miquel, one of the most historically renowned persons from Montsant, in honor to the Cister monks, and then the Carthusians, who brought the vine cultivating culture to this region.

    A source of Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon that can rival its Napa Valley neighbors, the Alexander Valley is the hottest AVA in the county. This large and heavily planted appellation is only 25 miles from the coast, but it is relatively free of fog due to the sheltering effects of the mountain ranges in between. However, the Russian River, which runs through the valley, creates cool-climate pockets and soft, alluvial soil ideal for grape-growing.

    In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up over 50% of plantings, Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties as well as Zinfandel thrive here, all of which take on a bold and voluptuous personality. Ample, fleshy Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate white wine production. Some old-vine plantings of Grenache have been discovered here, and more recent experiments with Sangiovese and Barbera show great promise.

    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.
