SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 1, 2018 — Chloe Wine Collection builds upon its portfolio of super-premium wines with the introduction of a 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon. A favored varietal among wine enthusiasts, this creation from Winemaker Georgetta Dane is the perfect addition to the collection’s robust lineup of red wines. Beginning in February, Chloe Cabernet Sauvignon is available nationwide at select retailers for a suggested retail price of $17.99.
Chloe’s Cabernet Sauvignon is bold, velvety and sophisticated, featuring flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate and coffee with a hint of spice. This latest addition to Chloe Wine Collection is aged for 14 months using French and American oak barrels, resulting in a rich, balanced and complex wine, with sturdy tannic structure and a long, lingering finish. With its full-bodied mouthfeel and distinct taste, it pairs well with seasonal dishes and is ideal to sip during the colder months.
Sourced from prized vineyards in the San Lucas AVA at the southern end of Monterey County, these unique grapes reach optimal ripeness as the San Lucas AVA is believed to have the largest diurnal temperature shift of any California winegrowing region. Cool nights, foggy mornings and warm sunny days are perfectly suited for this prestigious grape varietal to thrive. Shaly loam soil in the vineyard provides exceptional drainage and strengthens the vines producing small, concentrated berries with intense aromas and robust flavors.
“We are thrilled to expand the Chloe Wine Collection portfolio with this most sought after varietal and know that our customers will enjoy the bold, velvety and sophisticated flavors,” said Marketing Director Kimberly Fabbri. “Our unique winemaking process delivers exceptional taste and makes this the perfect wine to sip with friends and family.”
The wine is poised for success, as Cabernet Sauvignon is currently the top selling varietal over $11according to Nielsen*. With Cabernet Sauvignon sales ahead of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, this is the ideal time to introduce this new Chloe varietal.
Under the direction of Winemaker Georgetta Dane, Chloe Cabernet Sauvignon joins the following varietals from the Chloe Wine Collection:
- Prosecco D.O.C
- Valdadige D.O.C Pinot Grigio
- Sonoma County Chardonnay
- Central Coast Rosé
- Monterey County Pinot Noir
