The Joseph Carr Cabernet consistently appeals to us for its balance and modest price point. Winemaker Aaron Pott was awarded the title "Winemaker of the Year" by Food and Wine magazine in 2012. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is rounded out with 4% Merlot and aged in a blend of 75% French and 25% American oak.
The Cabernet Sauvignon exudes coffee, cherry, mint, fig, violets and chocolate in the nose, medium bodied attack with raspberry, cherry and roasted meats finishes with great length with roasted meats, chocolate and candied violets.
Joseph Carr chose to follow a dream in 2005 when he founded Joseph Carr Winery in Carneros, California. “We’re a family owned company dedicated to making world class, handcrafted wines. We work with small growers, coopers and winemakers producing elegant, sophisticated, yet approachable wines from Napa Valley, Carneros, and the North Coast of California.
