2015 Resolute (Aerena) Red Hills Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1353177

The fruit for this 100% Cabernet was grown at 2400 ft. in the Mayacamas mountains north of St. Helena, prime territory for producing concentrated, intense wines. A classic mountain Cab by winemakers Aaron Pott and Kyle Mizuno. Tasting notes from the winery: "The 2015 Resolute Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of blackberry, plum, cola, fig, cigar tobacco, vanilla, cherry, and cocoa. Smooth upon entry, this medium-bodied wine leads to a balanced mid palate with pleasant acidity. Flavors of toasted brioche, toffee, cola, and clove come together for a lingering finish."

This is a fantastic value Cabernet. It is big, round and full bodied, packed full of dark fruit flavors. It lifts way above its weight providing a ready to drink Cabernet that has fruit and balance. Great alone it will be best with hearty foods.

The intensity of the Mayacamas Mountain fruit shows here and gives classic Cabernet aromas of cherry fruit, spice and herb. This is very pure and medium bodied with a middle of blackberry fruit and a long, lingering finish. If this balanced, delicious and super drinkable wine said Napa on the label it would sell for twice as much.

This tastes like a big, saturated, mountain fruit Cab from some cult Napa producer—except it’s $19.99! Blackcurrant, cassis, mocha, charred oak and graphite. A full- bodied Cab but one that is true to the varietal and an exceptional value.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
