Rancho Sisquoc Winery
Cabernet Sauvignon
1999

Specifications
Varietal: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Malbec
Appellation: Santa Barbara County
pH: 3.43
Total Acidity: 0.69
Alcohol Content: 14.4%
Residual Sugar: 0%

Winemaker's Notes: This Cabernet is deep ruby in color with high viscosity and brilliant clarity. Aromas of blackberry, leather, and oak dominate leading to a palate of dried fruits, spice and vanilla. Tannins are smooth and the finish is clean.

Goes with this CD: Moacir Santos's Ouro Negro


Cosentino Winery
"The Novelist" Meritage White

Specifications
Appellation: California
Varietal: 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon

Winemaker's Notes: 75% barrel fermented and aged for seven months on the lees in French oak barrels custom designed for Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Floral notes, lemon peel, lime and honeydew melon in the nose. Rich, creamy and full yet balanced with layers of citrus in the mouth. A long, rich finish ripe with pear.

Goes with this CD: George Shearing's Like Fine Wine
