Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - Smashed berries, spice, and young leather dominate the nose. Nutmeg, vanilla, and chocolate flavors mingle with stewed cherries and cassis on the palate. A dry finish with rounded tannins complements the full-bodiedness of the wine. (Jun 2016)
The Newman's Own Cabernet Sauvignon presents a robust and rich palate with ripe berries, red fruit, herbal and toasty oak flavors. Cherries and vanilla spice on the mouth lead to a long, lingering finish.
|Wine maker notes
|To enhance our Cab’s layered intensity, we ferment our grapes in stainless steel tanks and age the wine in French and American oak, allowing the individual characters from each vineyard to marry together.
|More than 25 years ago, Paul Newman created his first product—a salad dressing he mixed up for friends and neighbors in his basement. Packaged in old wine bottles with parchment labels, the salad dressing was a surprise hit, and Newman’s Own was born.
Over the years, Newman’s Own launched pasta sauces, popcorn, salsa, pizza and even a line of organic foods. But something was missing at the table: wine.
Today, Newman’s Own crafts world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Pinot Noir from grapes sourced from premier vineyards throughout California. “We’ve come full circle. We’re back to wine bottles, but this time, we’re filling them with wine that will complement my salad dressing and pasta sauce. Wine was the only thing missing at dinner time—now the meal is complete,” Paul Newman said in early 2008.
