2017 Bernardus Cabernet Sauvignon
Bernardus is very excited to announce our new bottling of Cabernet Sauvignon from our Carmel Valley estate vineyard. Our winemaker has employed special techniques in producing this delicious wine, such as picking grapes early from specially selected blocks and fermenting them at cool temperatures using special yeasts which enhance fruitfulness. The result is an incredibly drinkable Cabernet to be enjoyed in its youth, yet capable of aging for years to come.
Our 2017 Cabernet exudes spicy aromas of red berry and cranberry. The palate beautifully reflects the aromas showing juicy red fruit flavors with a subtle, refreshing acidity. Our Cabernet has been aged for six months in 28-year-old neutral French oak tanks in order to allow the fruit flavors of these grapes to shine through without any oak barrel influence.
We hope you will enjoy this wonderful wine as much as we do!
