Cannonball California Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Cabernet Sauvignon is the firstborn and signature of Cannonball, try it to find out why Cannonball stands out from the rest of the California wines.
Thrilled to present this 2016 Cannonball Cabernet Sauvignon! This Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark crimson colour and aromas of ripe plum, boysenberry and red spices. The taste is filled with red currant, sweet oak and fresh cherry, The mouthfeel starts with a substantial body and has just enough texture and acidity to leave a long and flavourful finish.
In terms of style, it has the best characteristics of traditional California (rich flavours) and old world Bordeaux (grainy tannins). It is outstanding to drunk and we promise you’lll love this more than many other California versions of the variety.
The grape crop was well-balanced with an average crop load, but smaller with looser clusters. Daytime temperatures during the ripening season were average, but there were many unusually cold nights. Even though sugar accumulation advanced easily, they allowed the fruits to hang longer than normal to achieve the desired flavor content. This vintage was an easy one to manage, the grapes had the right natural balance and were generous with exceptionally delicious flavors.
Since this is the Olympics season, the Cannonball logo reminds me of amazing athletes like Simone Biles – may you be as amazing as her after this bottle.
