100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The grapes for Urbanite Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 were sourced from California coastal growing regions and the Sacramento River Delta region. The various lots were separately destemmed, crushed and fermented on the skins for two weeks in stainless steel tanks. After a full malo-lactic second fermentation to soften the acids and add complexity to the aroma, the base wines were aged for 10 months in second-use French oak. The various lots were then blended to taste and bottled.
Urbanite Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon is a young wine intended for immediate enjoyment. The supple richness of Cabernet Sauvignon from different vineyards, blended together, creates a balanced, expressive, lush wine. Dark crimson color and spicy cedar aroma precede flavors of dark mulberry and ripe plum. Hints of vanilla and oak remain in the background, adding context and balance.
Serve Urbanite Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe cheeses, whole grained breads, grilled sausages and steaks.
