The tasting experience of Shannon Ridge High Elevation Cabernet Sauvignon is both profound and rewarding. The wine exudes aromas of rich dark fruits like blackberries and cherries, elegantly mingled with hints of cedar, dark chocolate, and a touch of spice. These elements are seamlessly integrated with subtle undertones of oak, adding to the complexity. On the palate, the wine is robust and full-bodied, showcasing a harmonious blend of the dark fruit flavors with nuances of mocha, vanilla, and a hint of earthiness. The wine’s structured tannins and balanced acidity lead to a long and lingering finish, indicative of its high-elevation origin.

This Cabernet Sauvignon is exceptionally food-friendly. It pairs splendidly with a variety of hearty dishes, including grilled or roasted red meats like steaks, lamb, and venison. Its bold flavor profile also complements rich stews, hearty pasta dishes, and a wide range of cheeses, especially aged varieties. For vegetarian cuisine, it pairs well with dishes featuring robust flavors and textures, such as grilled portobello mushrooms, lentil-based stews, or vegetable gratins. Shannon Ridge High Elevation Cabernet Sauvignon is more than just a wine; it's a representation of Lake County’s unique high-elevation terroir and Shannon Ridge's ethos of harmony with nature, ideal for those who appreciate a wine with depth, complexity, and a strong sense of place.
