Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Sophia’

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in color with hints of strawberry, raspberry, menthol, vanilla, and coffee on the nose. The palate is intense, round, and well-balanced. A smooth and elegant wine with ripe intense fruit and a long, savory finish. Dedicated to the legendary Italian actress, Sophia Loren, a dear friend of the Arenas, the wine (like the actress) has great panache and elegance. Pairs well with roasted red meats and aged cheeses.
