Lasirena cabernetsauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

La Sirena

Our 2011 Cab is a gorgeous deep garnet color. The aromas are of ripe fruit with layers of berry, cherry and plum enhanced by sweet and spicy toasty French oak. From the first enticing sniff the wine leads you to a round lush tasty mouthful of Cabernet Sauvignon. The Flavors mirror the aromas nicely in this soft silky easy to love Cab. The tannins are very light and refined yet the wine has good depth and length especially in light of the challenging 2011 harvest. We were able to make a delicious Cabernet blend that will be easy to approach at release and an earlier aging wine. Enjoy!

Reviews

  • "90 points. Heidi Barrett has done a terrific job with her 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. A distinctly savory, aromatic Cabernet in the style of the year, the 2011 is wonderfully nuanced and a great choice for near and medium-term drinking. Hints of sage, leather, cedar and rosemary are laced into the finish. The 2011 stands out for its balance and overall harmony, both of which are commendable for the year." (vinous)
