| (Current Vintage) Husch Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml 12 Pack|
Husch Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep purple color, with aromas of spice, black cherry and cassis with eucalyptus, smoke and coffee undertones. In the mouth flavors of currant and ripe plum are supported by abundant round tannin. This wine offers great depth and concentration and will age very well into the next decade. From the Winemaker
Husch Vineyards is a small, family owned and operated winery. Founded in 1971,it is the oldest winery in the picturesque Anderson Valley. The vineyards are comprised of some of the earliest varietal plantings on the valley floor. In 1968, Tony and Gretchen Husch bought the 60-acre Nunn ranch between Philo and Navarro on Highway 128. The land was well known for growing apples and grains. They soon planted eight acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Gewurztraminer grapes on the cool slopes of the property. The plantings sweep down towards the pristine Navarro River. The first official crush was in the fall of 1971.
In 1979, Hugo Oswald Jr. bought the 6,000 case Husch Winery from the Husch family. The Oswald family had been growing pears in the Santa Clara Valley, but when the area was expanding they sold the land and headed for the southern tip of Mendocino County. Today Husch Vineyards remains owned and operated by the 3rd Generation of the Oswald family: Zac Robinson and Amanda Robinson Holstine. Winemaking is under the direction of Brad Holstine. Al White, in charge of all viticulture operations, has been with Husch since 1973. Through the years Husch has modernized and expanded, but it has never lost its initial rustic charm or reputation for great wines.
This vintage vintage pairs nicely with food. A magnificent accompaniment would be Filet Mignon With Whiskey Mushroom Sauce, grilled vegetables, or roast lamb and warm spinach salad.
