Dark Horse Cabernet Sauvignon has a strong tannin structure that creates a great first impression that you’re not going to forget.
With an intense yet balanced blend of black fruit aromas including blackberry, cherry and soft prune, the burst of flavours are simply delicious.
Dark Horse winemaker, Beth Liston, believes that fortune favours the bold. Her pioneering approach to viticulture and winemaking champions originality and above all, taste.
Regional information: We selected the grapes for our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from premier California vineyards. Winemaker Beth Liston visited these vineyards daily to determine which blocks would make it to the final blend. California experienced its third year of dry and warm weather, making canopy management key to allow just the right amount of sunlight on the berries. An early bud break was followed by an early harvest, producing wines of outstanding flavour and acidity in the glass.
Vinification: The grapes for our Dark Horse Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested at optimum ripeness led to easy and early extraction of rich colour and velvety tannins in the
fermenters. Warmer fermentations (88F - 92F) resulted in more intense flavours and fruit forward aromatics. Post fermentation, the wines are aged to add complexity and balance to the wines.
