About Talmage Wines
Talmage Cellars California Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Talmage Cabernet Sauvignon represents the best that this powerful varietal has to offer. Our Winemaker has extensive Cabernet Sauvignon experience, having worked with several world class producers from the Medoc and Napa Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon can display black cherry, blackberry, blueberry and plum. As the wine matures, warm spices, vanilla, black pepper, tobacco and leather aromas can develop from aging in toasted oak barrels. This is a dry wine with layered tannins that coat the mouth from beginning to finish. This classic Cab is elegant, charming, robust and has a long finish.
Talmage Cabernet Sauvignon wines are very structured and can be enjoyed with lamb chops, grilled beef steak or pan seared pork medallion. Try it with the featured recipe: Zesty Red Wine and Herb Steak.

These compounds often come from toasted oak barrels. This is a dry wine with nice, lengthy tannins that layer and coat the mouth from start to finish. A classic Merlot is easygoing, charming, filled with tannins and some length.

With that type of mouthfeel, this wine can hold up alongside creamy pasta, rice dishes, seafood, grilled fish or a cheese platter. Try it with the featured recipe: Shrimp & Pasta Salad.
