' Cabernet Reserve - Renaissance Winery

Cabernet Reserve

Renaissance is one of the few wineries in the United States, if not the world, who has such an extensive collection of Library Wines.

Our cellars are replete with wines of age, quality, depth and breadth which add even more enjoyment to that moment.

The different reserve designations are specifically intended. The Cabernet ‘Vin de Terroir’ wines are always 100% varietal. The Cabernet Premiere Cuvee wines are intended to represent the deepest most concentrated (and therefore most long-lived, but this is not always guaranteed) cabernet-based blends. Some wines are simply labeled Reserve because of their exceptional quality.

When Karl Werner came to us as a consultant, he first tasted the soil.

The wine is ravishing! The clean, fresh, perfectly defined bouquet offers spiced and macerated black currants, mulberries and blueberries wreathed with smoke, cedar and tobacco and an edge of dusty, flinty minerality.
