A Cab so big and rich we had a hard time fitting it in the bottle. A Cab drinker's staple with deep red color and a rich, full bodied structure. This is what happens when you take a Sledgehammer to Cabernet grapes - rich explosive flavor that packs a powerful punch to the palate. Full integrated flavor that is truly ground breaking.
The Sledgehammer Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep crimson color in the glass. Aromas of blackberry, currants and spicy notes of clove and cinnamon are prominent in the wine. This Cabernet is rich and smooth with a full-bodied mouthfeel and loads of flavor on the palate. Juicy dark fruit, ripe plum and baking spice flavors are powerful. The fruit forward style of the wine is balanced with smooth tannins and notes of crushed blackberry on the long finish.
This wine was sourced from premium vineyards throughout sunny California including regions along the beautiful Central Coast. This area offers abundant sunshine and warm days but is tempered by the cooling influence from coastal breezes. The wine grape growing regions of California are some of the best in the world and the storybook weather throughout the state helpsto produce bold, fruit-driven and well-structured Cabernet Sauvignon.
Sledgehammer was launched in 2010 as a wine that does not fit into the status quo of the wine category and targeted towards Millennial Males entering the wine category. Sledgehammer makes Big, Bold wines that suit the palate of their target audience and appeal to them because of their bold, masculine and irreverent nature.
