Cache Creek Vineyards’ 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from the Cache Creek Vineyard in Lake County, California. Medium dark red in color with garnet edges, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of bright black cherries, vanilla, coffee, and slight herbal notes complemented by the French and American oak barrels. The mouthfeel is soft and round with ample intensity and robust, complex flavors of earth, blackberries, and leather. The finish leaves smooth chocolate and vanilla impressions with layers of fruit and oak.
Try pairing the Cache Creek 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon with meatballs, hamburgers, or grilled steaks. Aged 26 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels. French barrels were used to enhance the mouth feel and length in the finish, while American barrels were used to enhance the vanilla and blackberry aspect of the natural vineyard fruit characteristics.
