Rosati Family Winery


Cabernet Sauvignon


Our 2006 has a rich, dark ruby red color and vibrant clarity.Its aromas display warm blueberry compote, cherry, and cassis as well as vanilla, violets, and hints of anise, plus earthiness, and toasted oak. In the mouth, the wine is integrated and balanced with excellent fruit concentration and length. It is a rich wine with a lively freshness that lingers in the mouth. Serve with grilled Rib-eye steak.
