Butternut
Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

BNA Wine Group

Because everyone has a dark side. Our Butternut Cabernet is loaded with dark, rich fruit.

WINEMAKING
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.

TASTING NOTES
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.

FOOD PAIRINGS
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.
