Food Pairings for Sanctuary Estates Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Usibelli Vineyards
The vintage is a wine of wonderful elegance and balance. The wine has a deep, rich, dark color that sets the stage for the abundance of ripe black fruit aromas represented by blackberries and black cherry. These are followed by discrete and refined oak that expresses itself through notes of toast, coffee beans and cola. The great balance of this wine shows through in the mouth. It is a delicious wine that is creamy and soft without being heavy and jammy. The juicy mouthfeel of cherry and blackberry is intricately interwoven with beautifully balanced tannins. The artful play between the concentrated richness and competing dryness expresses its Rutherford roots and leads into a dreamy, elegant and memorable finish.
