2012 Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

VINTAGE
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 significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool at night, while preserving the grape’s natural acidity. For Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2012 vintage was characterized by high winter rainfall followed by moderate spring and warm summer temperatures. This vintage produced exceptionally dark colored Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe, pure varietal flavors. Our passionate commitment to our Cypress Vineyards red wines is to preserve and showcase the alluring black currant and cherry fruit flavors resplendent in grapes grown in the Central Coast.

WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS
The 2012 Cypress Vineyards Cabernet is dark purple in the glass with a youthful red hue. The aroma is an attractive mix of ripe black cherry and raspberry, 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. This delicious wine pairs well with a range of casual dining options, from burgers, to ossobuco or pasta, and can be enjoyed in its youth, or cellared three to five years.
