Bronze Medal-2002 Santa Clara County Fair

 

  Winemaker's Notes:
  • Cabernet Sauvignon

The Sauber Vineyard, El Dorado County, is well established as a grower of fine syrah grapes 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.  Aroma of grapefruit and pineapple abound.  The crisp citrus character of this wine was crafted to complement any culinary fare.
