A taste of a quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley, typically delivers a balanced, multi-faceted sensory experience. Bold, powerful and structured, are adjectives often used to describe the architecture of these wines. Typicity of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon can be wide-ranging, as the defining characteristics of these wines emerge from the vastly diverse vineyard sites where the grapes are grown.
Cabernet Sauvignon does more than grow in Napa—it is here that the grapes have an opportunity to fully ripen even more so than in many other grapegrowing regions on the planet, resulting in bold, powerful and dominate flavors. The challenge for winemakers is to then harness that power, so that a pleasing and balanced experience follows once the wine hits the glass.
CabFest Napa Valley is the only event created specifically to showcase Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Therefore, a stellar list of participating wineries have agreed to pour tastes of hundreds of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon wines over the course of three days.
Tannic, textured and in demand. Fragrant, earthy, intense and lush. Vibrant, evolving and attractive with intense red and deep crimson hues. Tantalizing, strong and the “king” of wine varietals. These are just some of the descriptions of the sensory experience of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. These are wines that are luxurious, and wines that are meant to be cellared, savored, celebrated and enjoyed!
