The Gabrielle Collection produces a collection of handcrafted Cabernet Sauvignons that bring out the diverse personalities of the noble Cabernet grape through artful blending. Each wine has a unique name & label, which all together embody Gabrielle’s philosophy of wine-making: blends that are food friendly and balanced.
75% Cabernet Sauvignon 25% Syrah
Juxtaposition means relationship; side by side; combination- a perfect name for the food and wine experience. Gabrielle envisioned a signature wine to delight foodies- velvet in the mouth yet elegantly balanced. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon & Syrah was it! Chefs have juxtaposed this wine with a broad range of dishes from fish to fowl to game meats. The dish was better because of the wine and the wine better because of the dish.
Always a customer favorite from the Gabrielle Collection Cabernet Sauvignon portfolio! Lively fruit aromas welcome you, followed by flavors of earthy black fruits with exotic spices and along expressive finish.
The Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested in October from the certified organic O’Connell Family Estate Vineyard Creek Block, located in Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. The grapes from this block have amazing structure and longevity due to the sand and gravel soil structure. The estate vineyard lends depth, richness & complexity.
The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah goes with so many dishes, from meat to fowl to the sea- grilled salmon rubbed with GC Culinary Fish Rub, any game meat or fowl, duck, GC Culinary Meat Rub dry rub BBQ ribs, grilled vegetables with garlic infused olive oil drizzle, holiday turkey with all the fixings. And it is great to just sip!
