Wente Vineyards Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
A beautifully balanced USA Cabernet Sauvignon of distinct character, depth and intensity.
Aromatics of warm baking spices. On the palate this wine delivers ripe blackberry and fig with round, smooth tannins. Contains a splash of Petite Sirah (aka Durif) and Petit Verdot to add complexity and spice.
Since 1883, five generations of this family have handcrafted fine wines that express the very best of the vineyards and winemaking expertise. Our Estate Grown Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon is named after the vineyards located along the southern hills of the Livermore Valley.
The fruit comes from the valley floor and southern hills of Livermore Valley with its gravelly alluvial fans. The soils on the estate and climate help to give Wente a Cabernet that is rich in flavor with an appealing structure. Aged for 16 months in a combination of French, American and neutral oak barrels as well as stainless steel tanks to add fruit vibrancy.
