Life is a series of bittersweet experiences. Sadness at the loss of childhood innocence gives way to the centered confidence that comes with adulthood. Sometimes you have to take that step into the unknown to acquire something more nuanced and interesting. Enrich your life and take a step into something bigger than yourself. Stop drinking white wine for one night and taste the Gateway Cab. Welcome into the beautiful world of red wine.
Craveyon’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a young and non-threatening Cabernet that won’t bite you. Its smooth and calm effect might change the way you look at red wine.
Every wine has a genetic history, Cabernet Sauvignon, which literally means “wild vines” is the boldest baddest wine on the block. Recent studies at UC Davis showed Cabernet Sauvignon’s parents to be Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. It gained a reputation in the 80s as a hardy steak wine and the word Cab replaced the word Burgundy in American nomenclature. Its football captain dominance is a result of the flexibility of the grape. It can grow almost anywhere and the thick skins of the grapes can take a beating from the terrors of the vineyard. It has the toughness of a street thug yet can produce a wine with the soul and poetry of an artist.
