Main St. Winery Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

To create our classic California Cabernet Sauvignon, we chose fruit influenced by the warmer weather of Lake and Santa Barbara Counties that give the wine its fruit forward characteristics, while the cooler climate of Monterey lends balance and acidity. It is a powerful wine that is deep, dense, and ripe with opulent flavors of black cherry, plum, and a hint of earthiness.

Vineyard Information


Our premier vineyards provide the complex fruit that makes the 2011 Main Street Winery Cabernet Sauvignon. The warmer weather and unique microclimate and soil give the wine it’s rich
and fruit-forward characteristics.

Winemaking


The 2011 vintage was fermented using prise de mousse yeast, enhancing the color and flavor of the wine. The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak with 70% infused with French Oak staves. The French oak aided in integration of the wine characteristics and imparted elegant coffee and caramel flavors while the American oak added vanillin and toasted aromas to the wine.

Tasting Notes


Our 2011 vintage produced a spectacular wine that is rich and supple with aromas of plum,
red licorice, cedar and wild berry. The beautiful aromas lead to a balanced and full-bodied palate and a soft, lingering finish.
