Final Front Label - DB Cellars
DB Cellars is light style Cabernet from Central Coast. Developed from a deep passion for wine, a strong belief that wine brings people together, great wine can only be made with great grapes and expert winemaking. This wine is rich and elegant but not bold, with aromas and flavors of dark cherry, red plum, warm blueberry, crushed violets, hints of vanilla, lavender, crushed violets and a touch of savory and herbaceous hints. An intriguing wine that is very fruit forward with a lingering finish. Drink now if you enjoy a light young Cab or save for a few years!
