Food Pairings for Cedarville Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon El Dorado
Growing high quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes at a mountainous 2500 feet elevation is a rewarding challenge. There is great potential to make serious Cabernet Sauvignon from the Sierra Foothills, but it requires paying meticulous attention to the vineyard, picking the grapes at physiological maturity, and managing those mountain tannins. We are already rather fanatic about these matters, and we think it shows in our 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon. Estate Vineyard Block: East, West, and Creekside Blocks on a South facing slope Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon 14.4% alcohol Cases Produced: 399 Tasting Note: concentrated blackberry, black cherries, cocoa and cedar in the aromas. Layers of fruit unfold as the wine airs, and the wine's flavors are deep and rich, with soft tannins on the finish. This is a big wine, for sure, yet it is showing very well now and certainly has the structure to reward aging.
