Provenance - Fortitude - Cabernet Sauvignon
Overview: Over the past 150 million years, Napa Valley was formed by tectonic plate movement and volcanic activity. This extreme geology created soil diversity unique to any other region in the United States. Fortitude Cabernet Sauvignon by Provenance Vineyards is from the finest vineyards throughout Napa (the best of the best in our opinion), in which each vineyard adds another layer of rich complexity.
The Cabernet grapes come from acclaimed Napa Valley vineyards: Rutherford, Oakville, Diamond Mountain, Yountville and Howell Mountain.
Following hand harvesting, fermentation gently extracts the deep purple color and rich varietal flavors from the skin. A portion of the wine was fermented in new French barrels, with the balance in stainless steel to enhance the pLush texture of the wine and integrate fruit and oak character.
Tasting Notes: Big and bold, this full-bodied Cabernet offers power and finesse in the intensely extracted and concentrated wine. Incredible depth of structure supports an expansive palate saturated with black fruit, rich dark chocolate and toasty espresso.
Pairing: Prime rib roast, bison burgers, pork long ribs from the grill
