Black Fox Cabernet Sauvignon
Complex Cabernet Sauvignon is the most popular red wine. Black Fox’s take on this iconic red boasts flavors of raspberry and cherry, with hints of cassis and cedar, and it won the Silver Medal in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition 2016. Each sip dances on your tongue with vibrant tannins, light mouth feel, and a finish that doesn’t linger too long. Its full-bodied flavor pairs wonderfully with umami, savory, high-fat foods. In other words, keep Black Fox Cab on hand to class up a mushroom cheeseburger or grilled steak.
