1848 Winery Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
A full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 10% Merlot and 3% Petite Sirah which spent 25 months in French Oak. The wine is full bodied and still rather firm, on the nose and palate, blackberry fruits, tart plums, cherries, black pepper and slight notes of smoke all leading to a long and generous finish. This winery is the proud result of a long history of winemaking continuity beginning in 1848, through generations of the Shor family, and was founded by the 8thgeneration of the family. The quality wines produced combine the knowledge and experience gathered by the family through 163 years of winemaking with determination, knowledge, professionalism, and desire to explore new and exceptional classic wines. To succeed and fulfill the vision and dream of producing excellent wines, our boutique winery does not compromise professionally or technologically. The noble grape varieties which arrive at the winery are grown at selected mature vineyards planted in quality wine regions where the “terroir” is optimal.
