Hearty Red

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Foxglove range of wines from twin brothers Jim and Bob Varner are excellent value for such great quality wines. Bob is the winemaker and claims simplicity is the key to a great wine, letting the perfect fruit speak for itself. The Foxglove range is from Paso Robles in Central Coast, California.

‘Does California produce a better Cabernet for the price? This unpretentious bottling from the Central Coast is beautifully pure and expressive, bursting with clean raspberry fruit and nicely balanced on the palate. The US needs more wine like this!’
Decanter Magazine (Oct 16)

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. No stems, no whole clusters; malolactic fermentation. Great wine starts from great fruit. Look after the fruit and the wine takes care of itself. Enjoy.

Cabernet Sauvignon from New World countries are often a touch fruitier than their Old World cousins. Indeed this Cabernet Sauvignon has a nose and flavour of black fruits plus some liquorice and black pepper. Enjoy with a steak or roast beef with all the trimmings.

Varner Winery

California



After lavishing his attention on icon wines high up in the Santa Cruz mountains, Jim Warner comes down to Paso Robles, Central Coast, California where the Foxglove range of wines comes from Jim’s twin brother, Bob, is the winemaker. Bob’s ethos is to let the fruit do the talking. Simplicity is the key and he claims if you start with perfect fruit, then the winemaking needs minimal intervention. The Foxglove range is getting a fine reputation for superb quality price ratio. Others in the range are Zinfandel and Chardonnay.
