Wine Expert Note:

The Clayhouse Cabernet Sauvignon from the Red Cedar Vineyard is a remarkable red wine that showcases the classic characteristics of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape variety. With its deep ruby color and medium to full body, this wine offers a rich and complex flavor profile. On the nose, you can expect to find enticing aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, and plum, accompanied by hints of cedar, tobacco, and vanilla. These aromas are a testament to the careful oak aging process, which adds depth and complexity to the wine. The palate is equally impressive, with flavors of ripe black fruits, such as black cherry and blackcurrant, taking center stage. These flavors are complemented by notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and a touch of spice, adding layers of complexity to the wine. The tannins are well-integrated, providing a smooth and velvety texture, while the acidity brings balance and freshness to the overall profile. The Clayhouse Cabernet Sauvignon (Red Cedar Vineyard) is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but also has the potential to age gracefully. It pairs beautifully with grilled meats, hearty stews, and aged cheeses. Overall, this wine is a true expression of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, offering elegance, complexity, and a memorable drinking experience. Read more

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Alias Cabernet Sauvignon is a youthful, fruit forward, dry red wine with an amble body and notes of jammy blackberry fruit intended for everyday drinking either as a glass of full bodied red wine or with food.
