Bread & Butter wines take their name from the natural aromas and flavors that develop during winemaking. It also reminds us that some things are just better together. This Cabernet Sauvignon expresses captivating aromas of mocha, ripe berries, violets, and blackcurrant with intertwining layers of subtle black pepper, toasted oak and rich vanilla.  This beautifully crafted Cabernet Sauvignon enters the palate with layers of ripe blackberry and chocolate covered cherries. The round and luscious mouthfeel is accented by soft tannins and a hint of spice that weaves into a smooth, lingering finish.

Bread Butter, California - United States

Carneros and Arroyo Seco, California - United States

The intricate balance and layers in this wine come from multiple vineyard sourcing. In this case, we utilized two cooler growing regions on the California coast, Carneros and Arroyo Seco. Stradling the Napa-Sonoma border at the northern tip of San Pablo Bay, Carneros is renowned for its prevalent fog and long growing season that produce grapes with bright acids and fresh, crisp flavors. Arroyo Seco is located in Central California in Monterey County. One of the earliest recognized viticultural areas in the state, this small region has an ideal balance of warm days tempered by coastal breezes from the Pacific. The grapes develop rich sugars and fine balancing acids. Together, these two regions create wines of beauty and grace.
