Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Sku: 009029

Wine maker notes
The 2011 Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon displays ripe cherry, cassis and black fruit characters layered with hints of fresh herb, rich earth and French oak. Full-bodied and satisfying, this classic Cabernet is elegant and complex. While ready to enjoy upon release, the 2011 Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon will improve considerably with a few more years of bottle aging, and should remain in superb drinking condition for 10-15 years and more. We suggest pairing the wine with grilled lamb chops, braised oxtail, or a sizzling well-marbled steak.

Technical notes
2011 was our coolest and wettest vintage since 1997, with 130% average annual rainfall. The chilly spring prevented excess vine growth that could have resulted from the wet soils. Harvest began about two weeks late, with a cool October resulting in over 25% of our fruit still unharvested by the end of the month. After waiting out the rains of early November, we brought in the remainder of the fruit by mid-month, literally minutes before a six-day rain system hit. The seasonís cool temperatures led to average yields and very nice quality wines.
