Notes about product
The Ivory Label Cabernet Sauvignon combines fruit from appellations as far north as El Dorado and as far south as Paso Robles where some vineyards experience diurnal temperature extremes, which slows the ripening process and enhances the rich, succulent flavors of the fruit, as well as the complexity of the palate.
Aged 13 months in French oak.
Round and silky on palate with aromas of cherry, blackberry, cocoa, and toasted oak. Rich flavours of cassis, vanilla bean, espresso, earthy minerals linger on the palate.
