Sbragia Monte Rosso Cabernet 2006

Spragia Family Vineyards, Sonoma Valley, Monte Rosso Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 In the nose there is a blend of cedar, vanilla and black fruits. In the mouth there is a spot on integration of oak and fruit in a supple package, the structure of Cabernet behind the scenes, supporting the wine, while the edges are polished.

Tasting this wine reminds me of the recent visit to Spottswoode, where Cabernet is presented in a refined and sleek profile. There is magic in texture, in the way that it enhances the experience of the wine and you have that mastery of texture here in this ’06 Cabernet from Sbragia.

The grapes behind this wine include 5% Cabernet Franc and all of grapes were grown in the famous Monte Rosso Vineyard overlooking the Sonoma Valley. The wine was aged in new French oak for 2 years. Vinted and bottled in Geyserville 14.9% $50 retail at the winery, a media sample Sbragia Family Vineyards
