With a color that is dark as night, and flavors to match, this wine will surely impress. This wine is aromatically concentrated with notes of blackberry, black cherry, chocolate, and more subtle undertones of vanilla, spice, and herbs. Rich red and black fruit flavors, integrated tannins, and great acidity lead to an extraordinary texture and lingering finish. Consider pairing this wine with olives, braised beef shanks, or dark chocolate. Enjoy now or cellar for up to 10 years.
Husch Cabernet Sauvignon
Founded in 1971, Husch is the oldest winery in the picturesque Anderson Valley. The vineyards are comprised of some of the earliest varietal plantings on the valley floor. In 1967 Tony and Gretchen Husch bought the 60-acre Nunn ranch between Philo and Navarro on Highway 128. The land was well known for growing apples and grains. They soon planted eight acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Gewurztraminer grapes on the cool slopes of the property. The plantings sweep down towards the pristine Navarro River. The first official crush was in the fall of 1971.
