Most White Cabernets are darker in color due to a more vigorous pressing, A softer press keeps most of the color locked in the skin, the result is a softer more subtle wine. 


REVIEWS: Wine server, Scot's Favorite

"My favorite wine is the VS White Cabernet. I love the wine because it is fruity without being too sweet. At home, I like to pair this wine with honey glazed salmon. I think this win is special because it is made from our Cabernet grapes, but it is made from through our white wine process. This allows us to enjoy the flavors of our Cabernet grapes, which is fruity and has a strawberry/raspberry character, but in a white wine!"
