Food Pairings for Schug Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaker Tasting Notes: Supple and generous, this is a solidly built Cabernet blended in the classic Bordeaux style. A ripe mouthful of currant and cherry flavors is framed by fine tannins and a touch of spicy oak. It has a classic bouquet bursting with berries, cassis and spice. A generous portion of Merlot and Cabernet Franc are blended in to add charm and grace, further enhancing the bright berry flavors and lively acidity. Try this wine with hearty stews, wild mushrooms and grilled meats. Though ready to enjoy now, this wine will develop gracefully with 5 to 7 years of additional cellaring.
