  Winemaker's Notes:
  • Cabernet Sauvignon

The Sauber Vineyard is well established as a grower of fine syrah with intense fruit and color. The 2,800 foot elevation and well-drained granitic soils are ideally suited for producing grapes with outstanding varietal characteristics.  This wine was handcrafted in the classic French style.  The bright, rich berry fruit is embellished by a smokey, roasted character with just a hint of dried herb in the nose.
