My Essential Wine Co. Cabernet 2013

Unavailable

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Richard Betts, founder and winemaker of My Essential wines and former hotshot sommelier, is a Bordeaux wine lover, and we love that about him! He is striving at 'Essential' to produce California wines which yes, are fruit forward because it is such a sunny, warm region, but that maintain balance and elegance. One way he achieves this is by aging his wines in older French oak, never any new barrels. This Cabernet is big and plush yet has a solid backbone of tannin and nice freshness in the acidity. Betts says he is looking for 'grace, not girth.' The wine is labelled as 'California' appellation but it is actually made from fruit predominantly sourced from Santa Ynez and Happy Canyon, just north of Santa Barbara.
