The Las Florales Cabernet Sauvignon by Volker Eisele is an expressive red wine from California, vinified exclusively from Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Nevarez family named one plot Las Florales (The Flowers). There on this vineyard grows mustard, which blooms in a bright yellow.
This wine shines in the glass in a deep Bordeaux red with ruby red highlights. The nose is flattered by notes of ripe blackberries, red currants with nuances of cedar, flint and some vanilla. The palate is pampered by intense aromas of boysenberry and cassis. The character of this red wine is fruity, complex and intense. The round tannins are perfectly integrated into the full-bodied texture. The long-lasting finale is accompanied by hints of nutmeg, clove and some oak smoke.
