The Cabernet / Bordeaux Pairing illustrates the distinction between a Valle de Guadalupe Cabernet Sauvignon blend alongside a classic Cabernet-based French Bordeaux blend.
The Pairing offers an opportunity to look at the regional and stylistic differences of Cabernet Sauvignon by comparing two uniquely different wines side-by-side.
This Pairing includes the following wines:
Wine 1: Left Bank Bordeaux is filled with fruits like dried red currants and black plums with secondary notes of cedar, cured tobacco and violets.
Wine 2: Valle de Guadalupe Cabernet Sauvignon blend offers riper fruit with a softer texture. It shows juicy black currants, blackberries, baked cherries, mint and bittersweet chocolate with layers of toasted vanilla, espresso and caramel from the new oak.
