Brimming with ripe fruit character, San Telmo's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon offers dark cherry aromas and flavors accented with hints of spice, molasses and fruit preserves. Soft tannins gently structure this medium-bodied wine and support the velvety fruit flavors through the lingering finish. Pair this easy-to-enjoy Cab with gourmet hamburgers, grilled steak, pasta tossed with spicy red sauce or hearty stews.
In the cool early-morning hours, they handpicked the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes into small bins. After they were destemmed and crushed, the must was fermented in stainless steel tanks with two punch-downs per day to develop its deep red color and lush dark fruit flavors. To achieve the wine’s smooth, fruit-forward style—with the Cabernet Sauvignon grape flavors taking center stage—they pressed the wine as soon as fermentation stopped (no extended maceration) and oak aged only a small portion of the wine. The result is this approachable, food friendly wine that can be savored immediately.
