Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Our Estate Grown Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon is named for our vineyards located along the southern hills of the Livermore Valley. The Wente family farms approximately 400 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards using the two clones originating from California wine pioneer Charles Wetmore’s Bordeaux cuttings in the 19th century. With Livermore Valley’s unique East-West orientation, well-drained rocky soils, and unique mesoclimates, the Southern Hills vineyards are located in the most desirable settings with exposures ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon of distinct character, depth and intensity.

    Very heavy on the tannins. Not so bad but so much that I had a headache before I was even done with one glass!

    Unlike the previous review did not give me a headache. Wine is nothing special, but drinkable with food.
