The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of California’s coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime air’s persistent movement inland and seaward. The ocean’s infl uence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is signifi cant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool at night, while preserving the grapes’ natural acidity. For Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2011 vintage was characterized by high winter rainfall and was the coolest growing season in a decade. This vintage produced exceptionally dark-colored Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe, pure varietal fl avors. Our passionate commitment to our Cypress Vineyards red wines is to preserve and showcase the alluring black currant and cherry fruit fl avors resplendent in grapes grown in the Central Coast.

The 2011 Cypress Vineyards Cabernet is dark purple in the glass with a youthful red hue. The aroma is an attractive mix of ripe black currant and violet, with a bouquet of vanilla and smoky cedar. Round, sweet and crisp on the palate, this Cabernet Sauvignon is serious enough for the connoisseur, yet a good choice for anyone who simply enjoys a good glass of red wine. 2011 Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with roast leg of lamb, osso bucco and spaghetti bolognese. This wine can be enjoyed in its youth, or cellared up to five years.
