2014 Reserve Big Red Cabernet
Legend Of The Ranch Story:
In 1998 the Triple R Ranch transitioned from a working cattle ranch into a high fence game reserve. 3 miles of 8 foot fencing was installed around the families first 100 acres and shortly thereafter the ranch was home to its first red stag. Weighing in 360 pounds heavier than an average red deer, this 14 point, 800 pound red stag needed a BIG name! Big Red became the first deer species to rule the Triple R Ranch. Known to enjoy a big bold heavy Cabernet, Ron Ross made the Big Red Cabernet his flagship wine and the Triple R Ranch became “The Triple R Ranch and Winery”! This wine made a strong showing at the North Texas Wine Country‘s Drink North Texas event earlier in July! We hope you enjoy and share this outstanding wine and legend with your friends!
Appellation: New Mexico
The 2014 Triple “R” Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has a dark ruby red color and a slight orange hue at the rim. The nose burst with big notes of raspberries, red currant, black cherry, followed by subtle layers of black licorice vanilla. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon packs a punch on the palate with big burst of red & blue fruit. Layered notes of anise, vanilla and cedar are rounded out by sweet tannins on the finish. 2014 Triple “R” Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is a nice compliment to a fine steak or Italian dinner.
