Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

As the most famous American wine region, Napa Valley is known for producing the highest quality Cabernet Sauvignon. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is created with the finest resources that Napa has to offer.

This 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep reddish brown color with focused fruits such as cherry and blackberry yielding to long and supple tannins on the palate.

Napa Valley enjoys a Mediterranean climate with a long growing season that is marked by warm, summer days and cool evenings. These climate conditions are ideal for grapes to ripen slowly and evenly; promoting a balance between sugar and acid development. We experienced climate conditions that reaffirm Napa Valley’s excellent reputation for grape growing. The 2008 growing season for our Cabernet Sauvignon started hot but yielded to long, temperate days with cooler nights. Ultimately, the steady temperatures allowed the grapes to reach maturity with a long, slow even-ripening.

The area has a unique terroir with over half of the world’s soil orders located in an area one-eighth the size of Bordeaux. The well drained soil is composed of gravel, loam and sand rich in volcanic deposits and marine sediments. We tried to capture the harmonious diversity of this terroir with our wine.

Guarachi Family Wines’ Cabernet Sauvignon is from the Elkington-Setty, Lincoln, and Winfield Vineyards in Napa Valley. In September 2008, our grapes were harvested and a total of 3.5 tons were extracted from these vineyards, producing a limited 1,706 cases. Our 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon underwent malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and was aged for 18 months.

This 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep reddish brown color with focused fruits such as cherry and blackberry yielding to long and supple tannins on the palate. This is a complex, dense and well-balanced wine that can cellar for at least 10 years.
