Longshot Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Producted by E. & J. Gallo Winery in California, the grapes for Longshot Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested at optimum ripeness, which allowed for easy extraction of rich colour and velvety tannins. The winemaker employed a warm fermentation process, which has resulted in a wine with more flavour and fruitier aromatics. This cabernet is a bold wine with big personality, driven by flavours of blackberry and black cherry, supported by firm tannins and a hint of spice—all leading toward a complex finish of dark chocolate espresso
