Vinification Details

  • The grapes for our Dark Horse Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested at optimum ripeness led to easy and early extraction of rich colour and velvety tannins in the fermenters. Warmer fermentations (88F - 92F) resulted in more intense flavours and fruit forward aromatics. Post fermentation, the wines are aged to add complexity and balance to the wines.

History

  • At Dark Horse Wine, we wholeheartedly believe that fortune favours the bold. Winemaker Beth Liston marshals the best agricultural and winemaking resources from around the globe to deliver the unexpected: a bold wine that outperforms its price.

Regional Information

  • We selected the grapes for our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from premier California vineyards. Winemaker Beth Liston visited these vineyards daily to determine which blocks would make it to the final blend. California experienced its third year of dry and warm weather, making canopy management key to allow just the right amount of sunlight on the berries. An early bud break was followed by an early harvest, producing wines of outstanding flavour and acidity in the glass.

A great Cabernet Sauvignon at a decent price

5 stars

We love this Cab Sauv here, and after having just had a dinner and our guests having demolished a case thought it was worthwhile writing a review! It was a bit unexpected as I'd long given up on the good South African or Aussie Cabernet Sauvignons of the 80/90's which offer big bold oaky flavour. But after loving the Chardonnay and trying this had cleared a few supermarket shelves when on offer we liked it so much! So not for everyone's palate I'm sure, but if you like rich red's this is superb. Its as good (though different) to some of the best Zinfandel's we've been buying recently from California.

My new favourite

5 stars

I bought this wine as other peoples reviews were very good and I was very pleased with the taste, beautiful dark colour and very smooth !! I used to stick to usual same brands , but so glad I tried this one !

Good value cabernet sauvignon

4 stars

Another good red wine from the USA.Good value when discounted

Great value, deliciously spicy cab sauv

5 stars

Love this wine! It's big and bold with some really spicy, smoky flavours that develop brilliantly when the wine is left to breathe. It's perfect with tomato-based pasta dishes and red meat - or just to glug on its own! Just bought a couple of cases on special offer - grab it whilst you can!!

It's a cracker!

4 stars

For the money it ticks all the boxes. A strong punch of ripe berries and vanilla. It's a little strong on the vanilla as I'm constantly reminded of scotch malt whisky. Still no regrets on this one for the money. You'd pay just as much in the USA for this quality with a cork.

Bold,spicy Californian with coffee undertones

4 stars

Allow this wine to breathe for some time and it will show its true depth of flavour. This is a smooth wine with soft tannins and dark cherry fruit flavours and elements of coffee and chocolate on the finish Definitely one for food in my opinion and would accompany most red meat dishes particularly a peppered stake.

DELICIOUS DARK HORSE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

5 stars

A well balanced full bodied red wine with intense deep red colour, a wonderful bouquet and taste of black fruits - delicious.

Great winter red

5 stars

Fantastic find. Hope Tesco stock regularly. Spoke with Tesco Twickenham a Manager. Suggesting this.

Winner by a nose

5 stars

Bought several bottles so far in local store, this wine grows on you with its ripe berries, tannins and chocolate finish, an absolute bargain at the price, leaving in its wake the bulk delivered overpriced mediocre Aussie and South American offerings. At this price fill your cellar and enjoy.

Good value

5 stars

Good value @6.75 but you have increased the price by £2 therefore now price out of market.
