Scheid District 7 Cabernet Sauvignon


Category: Tags: ,

Scheid District 7 Cabernet SauvignonScheid District 7 Cabernet Sauvignon is made by the Scheid family from vineyards in southern Monterey. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Syrah and Merlot. A balance of power and finesse with blackberry and raspberry flavours softened by oak ageing.

California is divided into 17 grape crush districts, encompassing a wide range of climate, terrain and soil types. District 7 is situated in Monterey County that hugs the coast of California with a wide range of climate, terrain and soil types. It also has the longest growing season in California, a result of the chilled marine air from the Monterey Bay that rushes down the Salinas Valley each day. This longer ‘hang time’ gives the wine freshness, elegance and balance.

The grapes for District 7 Cabernet Sauvignon are grown on the estate vineyard in southern Monterey County. This locale provides a prime environment for growing this classic Bordeaux varietal, with sunshine-filled days followed by the cooling maritime influence of the Monterey Bay in the late afternoon. These conditions allow the grapes to hang on the vine and develop complex flavours and intense varietal character.
