BV Coastal Estate's 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon offers lush aromas of ripe blackberries and cherries, with subtle spice and chocolate notes. Smooth tannins envelope the fruity flavors, while toasty vanilla oak nuances linger on the finish. Pull the cork on this easy to enjoy wine when you pull steaks off the grill. It turns a simple barbecue into a fun celebration. Their Cabernet Sauvignon also goes great with gourmet hamburgers, lamb kebabs, pork chops and hearty pasta dishes, like mushroom lasagna.
To develop the approachable, fruit-forward style of this Cabernet Sauvignon, we first fermented the must (crushed grapes) in stainless steel tanks until dry. The skins contribute flavor and tannin to the wine so we re-submerged the cap of skins into the juice several times a day during fermentation. After pressing, we oak-aged the wine to weave toasty vanilla nuances through the expressive aromas and velvety flavors. A dash of Merlot (5%) rounded out the flavor profile.
