Montevina Cabernet Sauvignon
Classic varietal characteristics like ripe cherry aromas, complex flavors, and silky tannins. As distinctive as it is, it’s also friendly and unpretentious with plenty of wild currant and plum flavors, with hints of allspice and dark chocolate on the palate.

Montevina Winery was started in the Sierra foothills back in 1970, picking up where Prohibition left off. Their first wines were released in 1973, and Montevina quickly became known for robust, full-bodied red wines—especially Zinfandel and Barbera—which revived interest in the historic Amador wine region.
Today Montevina owns and manages 400 acres of estate vineyards, including several notable, old-vine vineyards. Their state-of-the art winery is spectacular.
This Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from 40% Monterey County and 60% Lodi Californian vineyards known for consistently producing top-notch fruit. The warmer weather vineyards give this wine its fruit-forward characteristics while the cooler vineyards balance the acidity. The different varietal expressions produced in each vineyard allow us to create a balanced and inviting Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wine was fermented for one week at 85 degrees Fahrenheit. After settling
and racking, it was introduced to French and American oak.
