Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"This medium-bodied wine provides delicious aromas of fresh red cherries and sweet vanilla with a light, herbal touch. Soft tannins and a toasty wood character support the juicy flavors. A graceful, flavorful wine to enjoy immediately, accompanying chicken dishes, red meats, game, and mildly seasoned pastas." -Winery

The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley. Although much has changed for the Trincheros and Sutter Home, the motto and philosophy originated by their father more than a half-century ago remains the same: "A great product for a fair price." After resurrecting Sutter Home in 1948, the Trincheros struggled to keep the family winery afloat, imbuing it with the values of hard work, ingenuity, humility and integrity that have characterized them ever since. Each member of the family played a vital role in keeping the business running: Mother Mary Trinchero kept the books, younger children Vera and Roger helped on the bottling line, while older brother Bob assisted his dad, Mario, and uncle John in cleaning out tanks and barrels. The family's cohesion kept Sutter Home together and eventually made it the success it is today. With its creation of White Zinfandel in the early 1970s and the introduction of high-quality, affordably priced varietal wines during the 1980s and '90s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest, independent family-run winery in the U.S. Read less

One of my favorites for just drinking especially when I am not in the mood for very dry but not very sweet either. Extremely easy to drink and easy on the pocket book! Sweet and fruity up front but with a drier finish.

Cherries, sweet vanilla and herbs. The medium-bodied, juicy, cherrylike flavors are supported by mild tannins and a toasty wood character. Pour with duck or lamb with berry sauces.

Wine Tasting NotesThis Cabernet Sauvignon offers a delicious aroma of fresh red cherries and sweet vanilla with a light herbal touch. Medium bodied and juicy, the cherry flavors are supported by soft tannins and a toasty wood character.

Rich and round, but with a youthful edge, this is the sort of cabernet you want to drink with friends around the grill, where what you offer for dinner will tame the light tannins.

Simple, sturdy and flavorful, with a light enough texture to show off the pure currant and blueberry flavors. Drinkable now.

Rich, smooth, cherry and currant flavors mingle with vanilla scents from oak aging to produce a delicious wine.
