Whenever I hear the word “CARNEROS,” I immediatley think of delicious Pinot Noir and Chardonnay…but after drinking Treasure Hunter 2009 Man O’ War Carneros Cabernet Sauvignon, I may have to train myself to start thinking amazing Cabernet.
Portions of Carneros are a cool climate making it ideal for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but the Northern Boundary is warmer with rolling hills making it perfect for Cabernet Sauvignon. Wind and thin soil produce low yields and long hang time resulting in complex wines.
“The Man O’ War” is delicious and complex. This wine shows superb tannic structure and is soft, complicated, and refined. Balanced with dry but rich flavors of black cherry, plum, chocolate, and baking spices. This wine will definitely make you rethink Carneros…I sure did.
Like all the Treasure Hunter wines, “The Man O’ War” is very limited and once it is gone, it is GONE! Gallucci’s Italian Foods sells the “Man O’ War” for $19.99 per bottle. Case discounts are available on all of our wines.
