Because everyone has a dark side. Our Butternut Cabernet is loaded with dark, rich fruit.
The year started off with record rainfall leading to early, robust growth on the vines. Then summer started off average but quickly changed to one of the hottest summers on record! The vines and grapes were tested, but with modern farming techniques, the vines were aided and protected. In the end, due to ample water and sunlight, 2017 will produce another excellent vintage.
The old adage says that Cabernet is king. We created Butternut Cabernet to be king in delivering maximum flavor, quality, and value. Aromas of red berry fruit emerge from the glass with flavors of dark chocolate and round tannins lingering on the palate.
Butternut Cabernet goes well with braised beef short ribs with roasted Brussel sprouts and fingerling potatoes or dark chocolate fondue with strawberries, biscotti, and pound cake.
