Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $50.00 per bottle

Description: Champoux Vineyard has done it yet again. Consistent, exquisite quality has proven this to be one of the most exciting vineyards in Washington State. Black cherry, dark chocolate and a hint of green olive exemplify the beauty of our 2004 Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Firm tannins suggest this wine will age gracefully into the future.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
