Aerena-CabernetSauvignon

Branding aside, this Cabernet Sauvignon continues to score well with critics and fans alike, vintage after vintage. The wines for the ÆRENA label are produced by Blackbird Vineyards winemakers Aaron Pott and Kyle Mizuno.

The grapes for ÆRENA Cabernet Sauvignon are grown in a single vineyard in the Red Hills region of California’s Tuolumne County. The wine is aged in French oak for nine months. Tasting notes form ÆRENA Wines include:

“…enticing aromas of blackberry with hints of black licorice and graphite. Rich, concentrated notes of plum and black cherry on the mid palate leading to layers of dark chocolate with soft tannins that finish with cocoa and vanilla.”

Wine Enthusiast named ÆRENA Cabernet Sauvignon an Editor’s Choice, awarding it 90 points.
