2011 Coastal Series Cabernet Sauvignon
Today’s 2011 Healdsburg Ranches Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect Spring and Summer Cabernet Sauvignon. This light-hearted wine is an approachable and affordable, delectable treat.
2011 Cabs are just beginning to come around and while it may benefit from another year or two of bottle age, today’s wine is ready to drink. With lovely aromatics and a mouthfull of dark fruit and earthy bramble.
Whether you’re looking for a great daily drinker, or you need to stock up on a great party wine, this wine will delight - without breaking the bank.
Light garnet hues with a very slightly opaque core. Ultra-skinny legs fall from mid-way up the glass wall.
Aromas of black cherry soda, sage, plum and dried herb lead to raspberry liquor and strawberry licorice.
Savory and medium bodied with flavors of plum, dark stewed berry fruit, dried fall leaves and subtle bramble.
Dark fruits tail off quickly as the wine retains its more savory characteristics for far longer. Softly drying at the edges of the mouth.
Serve this lighter-style Cabernet with a variety of hard cheeses and a charcuterie plate.
