Broc Cellars "The Perfect Red" Cabernet Sauvignon 2022


From Broc Cellars:

Tasting Notes: Marionberry, Thai Basil and Cubanelle peppers

This Cabernet Sauvignon is a fresher style than other Cab representations. We harvest the grapes at lower brix compared to neighboring Napa Valley to help highlight the style we prefer and keep it fairly simple in the cellar. This vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, a combination that provides a delicious balance of dark fruits and soft tannins. Most of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were destemmed with the remaining grapes left whole cluster. We fermented with native yeast and pressed early to lessen the amount of tannins in the wine.

For Chris, the ‘Perfect Red’ means, “Something that’s easy to drink but has enough complexity to elevate the wine…is affordable and ‘perfect’ for what it is and how it’s priced.”
