With a precise blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes meticulously grown and carefully cultivated on the Havens’ Family Estate hillside vineyards, Château Cal-a-Vie Red Wine epitomizes the convergence of old world elegance and a delicate modern balance. An exquisite natural environment with gentle ocean breezes, ideal soil conditions and warm California sun have helped to enrich the grapes to ensure this inspiring and perfectly balanced wine.
With tremendous depth of flavor in the mid-palate and finishing with a bright crimson color, this wine develops rich berry and oak flavors revealing touches of licorice and firm tannins. The aging in new French barrels brings out the earthy and oak tones allowing for a classic Bordeaux style finish.
The 2014 features cassis and Bavarian berry notes with a hint of blueberry pie supported by velvety tannins and a seamless supporting structure.
Notes of black cherry, sweet spice, pipe tobacco and black pepper. Contains a broad and complex mid palate with a finish reminiscent of a great old-world Bordeaux style wine with tannins and acid. Matches well with saucisson, dry meat and any dark red meat that has been lightly seasoned.
