Wine clubs offer Cab collections
Cabernet Sauvignon usually matures for up to a year and a half in barrels of high-quality oak. Napa wineries trying to create the perfect Cab draw from the best grapes of multiple rootstocks and vineyards, combining them in vats of French oak for just the right balance. An example this is the Signature Cabernet Sauvignon of Conn Valley Vineyards, which comes only from the best of the vintage. The 2011 Signature Cab is a dark purple and red wine with an aroma of berries, blue flowers, anise and minerals. It has a fruity palate of blackberries and blueberries with a hint of violets. Many wine clubs offer collections of Cabs from different parts of the U.S, so you can explore the similarities and differences between them.
