SPRING CLEAN YOUR PALATE WITH
CALIFORNIA CABERNET SAUVIGNON

by Jyll Jara, WSET II

No listing of California wines would be complete without the inclusion of the “Big Daddy” Cabernet Sauvignon. Although we are emerging from Winter into Spring, there is always room for BBQ & Cabernet Sauvignon. CA has become synonymous with this powerful grape, and is recognized for its complex, ageable world class wines. Time to dust off your grilling tools, and that bottle of Cab that has been patiently awaiting decantation!
