We are thrilled to present our 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon! The 2017 grape crop was well-balanced with an average crop load, but smaller with looser clusters. Daytime temperatures during the ripening season were average, but there were many unusually cold nights. Even though sugar accumulation advanced easily, we allowed the fruit to hang longer than normal to achieve the desired flavor content. This vintage was an easy one to manage, the grapes had the right natural balance and were generous with exceptionally delicious flavors.
The 2017 Cannonball Cabernet Sauvignon is dark crimson in color and has ripe plum, boysenberry, and red spice aromas. The taste is of red currant fruit with sweet oak, fresh cherry and berry flavors. The mouthfeel starts with a substantial body and has just enough texture and acidity to leave a long and flavorful finish.
AVA: California Alc: 13.8 TA: 6.3 g/l pH: 3.66

Founded in 2006 by a dynamic team of wine industry veterans who were determined to rock the wine world. The vision was to make the best California Cabernet under $20. Armed with a belief that wine should be fun, uninhibited and approachable, they set out to share a splash of Cannonball Cabernet in every glass.
By 2010, Cannonball Cabernet had established a solid reputation in the under $20 category and was receiving lots of love from consumers, restaurants, and retailers. They all wanted more, so the line was extended. The first varietal was Chardonnay, followed by Merlot, and then Sauvignon Blanc.
As our first born, Cannonball Cabernet remains our flagship wine.
