Cabernet Sauvignon is oe of most well-known wine varietals, growing almost anywhere. Our Isabel Cabernet Sauvignon is produced exclusively with fruit from the Rasmussen Vineyard in Calaveras County. These vines have benefitted from the warm, dry weather and rocky soil of Calaveras County. Once harvested, the wine is aged for three years in new American oak barrels after being cold soaked before fermentation. The care taken with both the fruit and the winemaking is what sets our Cabernet Sauvignon apart.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The wine exhibits classic red Bordeaux flavors of cassis with cedar notes from the barrels.
Vineyard Notes
The Isabel Cabernet is grown exclusively for Hovey Winery by Ginger and Clayton Rasmussen at their vineyard just east of Angels Camp, California. The 2016 growing season was exceptional, resulting is a wine worthy of the Isabel label.
Winemaker Notes
The wine is cold soaked before fermentation and racked into new American oak barrels, and is aged for least 24 months months prior to bottling. This wine will age gracefully for three to five years.
Food Pairing Notes
We find that grilled meats like New York strip steak pairs nicely with this robust wine. Alternatively try a charcuterie of ripe cheeses, spicy cured meats, olives and nuts.
