Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

One of the grapes that has long fascinated us at the vineyard, our planting of Cabernet Sauvignon, at a very young age produced wines of tremendous depth and integration that were nothing short of astounding. Consisting of 60% fruit planted in 1991 and 40% planted in 2001, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon shows the tremendous differentiation between the two sites, even though they are separated by less than 100 yards. This wine was created in our traditionally inspired low-intervention winemaking style. Post-fermentation, the wine was placed into a 20-month oak barrel program consisting of new, one and two-year old American and French oak.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
