2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

Sold Out

While The Brander Vinieyard has long been renowned for our Sauvignon Blancs, we are also very proud of our distinctive, classically Bordeaux-styled Cabernets.  This 2014 vintage offers gorgeous, pure fruit and presents an attractive, translucent dark ruby in the glass.  A nose of creme de cassis, dried sour cherry, and Madagascar vanilla bean leads into a beautifully delineated palate.  Pair with a garlic-rubbed filet with fingering potatoes, a grilled root-vegetable potatoe with feta and rosemary.
