Blackhawk Blue Label Cabernet Sauvignon (6pcs)
Blackcurrant Cabernet Sauvignon from California with style!
Deep red purple colour with black core. Rich aroma of dark berries and the Blackhawk's typical tones of vanilla, caramel and cedar. Powerful, full and soft juicy taste with loads of sweet cassis, black cherry and creamy mocha. 3-month aging in oak barrels gives a nice hint of vanilla in the finish. Mighty fine Blue Label Cabernet with style!
Blackhawk is a very popular wine with the distinctive golden eagle on the bottle.
The Lodi area in the Central Valley
Blackhawk is from the Lodi area in the Central Valley. This region is one of the most productive agricultural areas in the world, 90% of all wines from the United States comes from here. For the United States this area is even the main source for products such as tomatoes, asparagus, almonds and grapes, of course!
Powerful Cabernet Sauvignon from California
The Central Valley is the largest of the four wine regions in California. Due to the Mediterranean climate the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes have a very good chance to ripen optimally. This is mainly due to hot summers interspersed with mild winters.
