2018 Jamieson Ranche Light Horse Cabernet Sauvignon
Jamieson Ranch Vineyards in Nappa Valley, United States, is more than just a producer of great wines. Their "Light Horse" label is a metaphor for the winery's unique program of animal therapy for wine enthusiasts, war veterans and children with disabilities. So making beautiful wines and being actively involved in society go hand-in-hand
This Californian Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of mainly Cabernet Sauvignon (89%), Malbec (9%) and Merlot (2%). The wine has matured for 6 months in 20% French oak barrels and then another year in steel to get an elegant, fresh and supple finish instead of the many Californian blockbusters. In the nose we smell earthy scents of pine and morning dew, floral aromas of jasmine and magnolia. On the palate mainly flavors of blueberry and raspberry, medium-bodied, rich with lush, velvety tannins.
The fruity character and the supple tannins make this wine particularly suitable in combination with a pasta with wild mushrooms, chicken masala, double-cooked pork or rack of lamb.
