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.

Review from tesco.com

I bought this wine as I have been a big fan of Dark Horse Chardonnay (though I hear that the latest release which comes in screw-cap bottles no longer has the vanilla oakiness which was its strong point). For me this wine was a little disappointing in that it lacked any oak influence. Having said that it was very dark, reasonably full bodied and brimming with red fruit flavours (damson mostly). Plenty of tannin but rather understated on acid content. My wife really enjoyed it though, and rated it among the better red wines we have tasted for a little while.

My new favourite

Review from tesco.com

I was so impressed by the Chardonnay from Dark Horse, I had no hesitation in testing out their Cabernet Sauvignon. It does not disappoint I would describe this red as medium/full bodied. It is equal to (if not better than), many wines costing far more. Highly recommended.

Review from tesco.com

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.
