Food Pairings for Greg Norman Estates Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast
The North Coast appellation, which covers Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties, is renowned for the depth and richness of its Cabernet Sauvignon. Having access to a larger region offers the winemaker the luxury to choose the best grapes in order to create a balanced wine with lush fruit and firm tannins.The grapes were crushed and fermented an average of seven to 10 days. Pump-overs three times a day helped extract color and tannins. After fermentation, Ron aged the wine for 16 months in one- and two-year-old French oak barrels to round out the firm tannins and add complexity and depth of flavors.It has deep, rich flavors of blueberry and ripe black currant, and a nice velvety mouthfeel. It finishes out with discrete notes of sweet oak and a touch of mint.
