Inspired by the ancient Greek deity, the Bousquet family used Gaia as a symbolism of their organic 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon. The bold and intense violet color of this glass exemplifies the rich yet well-structured blackcurrant and black cherry aromas. This flavor journey is continued with notes of vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. To the pallet, this dry, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon has strikingly intense flavors structured by medium acidity and ultra-ripeness with medium tannin.
The complexity yet subtlety of this glass harnesses the blissful velvety texture that is desired with any high stature Cabernet Sauvignon. This Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in French oak barrels for 8-10 months and the French roots of the Bousquet family are reflected in the Old-World feel of this exceptional wine. Gaia - the goddess of Earth reflects the virgin landscapes that the Bousquet family occupied in Mendoza after their departure from France. The unique position and high altitude of Mendoza boast ideal wine growing conditions. The awe and beauty of the landscape are reflected in each glass of handpicked grapes in this elegant 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
