Food Pairings for Wente Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley Charles Wetmore Reserve
The origins of Wente Vineyards’ Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon date back to when Charles Wetmore fi rst imported this clone of Cabernet to the Livermore Valley from the commune of Margaux, France. This reserve wine has wonderful aromas, a silky texture with fl avors of black fruit, plum, and cedar provided by the cabernet lots. There are additional layers with subtle hints of vanilla and toasty oak. The petit verdot adds structure through tannins, creating an elegance to the wine. The 2002 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon delivers a soft, rich taste experience.
