A refreshing and flavorful Cabernet Sauvignon that strikes balance in the body of the wine and the flavors present. Made to be a table wine, but will age well.
Variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Location: Napa Valley, CA
Production: 671 cases
A bright lively wine with lots of flavor that is great with food. A nose of abundant red fruits, lots of bright cherry and bramble-berries, such as blackberry, cranberry and mulberry, framed with hints of mineral/herbal characters such as graphite, cedar and pencil shavings. The palate is vibrant and fresh with medium tannin and beautiful acidity. This wine will age beautifully but is ready to drink right away.
Fruit was hand harvested in small lots and fermented at low temperatures. It was punched down or pumped over only twice per day to preserve freshness and high-toned aromatics. Fermentation was long and slow, lasting for 2-3 weeks. Aged 20 months in mostly used barrels with a few new barrels included for spice.
Village Cab is a blend of wines from multiple vineyards throughout Napa Valley, from Rutherford down to Oak Knoll, all of which were organically farmed, fermented and aged by Matthiasson.
