Schug Winery 's Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley is a wonderful red wine cuvée made from Cabernet Sauvignon (75%), Merlot (12%), Cabernet Franc (9%), Malbec (2%) and Petit Verdot (2%) grape varieties.
In the glass, this red wine shines in a strong ruby red with purple highlights. The bouquet reveals the classic grape variety aromas of red berries, cassis and a subtle spice. The palate is pampered by notes of ripe heart cherries and black currants. The ageing in the wooden barrel gives this wine subtle hints of spicy oak. The delicate tannins harmonize perfectly with the lush fruit, velvety soft texture and filigree acidity. The finale is carried by berry aromas.
