Winemaking Notes: Flaco Cabernet Sauvignon is vinified at controlled temperatures. Maceration occurs during the first stage of fermentation to extract color, aromas, and flavors. After 12 days, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and then spends 3 months in French oak barrels before bottling.
Tasting Notes: This Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of ripe red fruit, vanilla and pipe tobacco with a peppery quality adding vivacity. The palate is supple and open-knit; it offers juicy raspberry, bitter cherry flavors, and a hint of candied rose. The tannins are smooth and easygoing. The wine finishes with a lingering smokiness.
