Lyeth Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
The 2018 Lyeth California Cabernet Sauvignon has a touch of Petit Verdot for added layers of depth and complexity
of flavor. Violet in the glass, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers expressive aromatics of raspberry and boysenberry-cedar
with a touch of minerality and a hint of cracked black-pepper. A soft and generous palate with delicious flavors of
savory spice, cocoa, and a hint of lavender on a long, lingering finish.
Chip Lyeth, founder of Lyeth was an adventuresome person – that same spirited character
and quality exists today in our Lyeth California Cabernet Sauvignon, California Red Blend,
Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sonoma County Red Blend. With each vintage,
we pay homage to the American spirit. Lyeth celebrates legacy and embraces adventure through
honoring love for individualism and expression. Explore the unique wines of Lyeth and share your
adventures of a well-synergized lifestyle.”
Covering the most vine acreage in the state compared to any other red wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon produces as much wine in California as Merlot and Pinot noir combined. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates, as well as the freedom of its winemakers, allow for an incredible range of wine styles from this single grape.
California’s most famous region—and especially for Cabernet Sauvignon—is the acclaimed Napa Valley. While Cabernet is successful throughout the world, rarely has it achieved such merit as it does from the Napa Valley. At this point the two are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other.
Napa’s closest neighbor, Sonoma County, does an impressive job keeping up with Napa’s fame and glory. Alexander Valley, Sonoma Mountain, Moon Mountain and Knights Valley contribute to the lot of some of California’s top-rated Cabernet Sauvignon.
Lake County in California’s North Coast has become a focus for some of Napa’s more respected growers. From the Central Coast come iconic examples of classic California Cabernet; Lodi and the Sierra Foothills are great budget-friendly sources of amicable Cabernets.
