Malibu Coast Cabernet Sauvignon

This tasty medium bodied wine introduces itself with ripe cherry and red plum backed by damp earth and tobacco. The finish is refined and distinguished making this wine a perfect pair for a hearty meal such as a steak or pasta with red sauce. As with most Cabernet Sauvignon, time is a friend. This wine drinks beautifully today but will mature and improve well past the end of the decade.

Thanks to the rain shadow effect and the volcanic and mineral composition of the soil, the Malibu Coast AVA has the perfect conditions for grapes to grow. This AVA is home to several microclimates. The microclimates allow for both warm climate and cool climate wines.

Winemaker Notes:

This delicious Cabernet Sauvignon first
hits your tastebuds with a bang! A Malibu-styled Cabernet Sauvignon with a bright
red and black fruit bouquet; showing hints
of tobacco and forest floor and violet on
the nose. These notes are paired, with a
lovely medium-plus body, a tannic
complexity, and finishes with hints of
vanilla and mocha like a soft blanket
coating your palate. A truly delicious wine
unlike anything you’ve tasted before. Our
favorite pairings: steak and dark
chocolate.
