Auspicion is a proprietary label created by Opici Wines that symbolizes the mystical connection between us, yet celebrates our own unique individuality. Fresh and fruit-forward selections are produced using grapes sourced from the ﬁ nest vineyards across northern California. The brand features two popular varietals that are sure to delight every consumer palate. Brought to you by the Opici family, this collection embodies their tradition of delivering top quality wines at an excellent value.
Classic in structure and ﬁnesse, Auspicion Cabernet highlights lush red and black berry fruit that build with a touch of chocolate, toffee and vanilla on a silky, lingering ﬁnish.
Aging: The wine is racked into used French oak barrels and ages for 1012 months before bottling.
Winemaking: Gently-harvested throughout September as each vineyard site reaches optimal ripeness. Freshly harvested grapes are gently pressed and destemmed before transfer to stainless steel tanks. A long, warm maceration ensues over the course of the next 3-4 days for maximum color and ﬂavor extraction. Occasional punching down of the cap increases concentration and texture.
Food Pairing : Enjoy with pasta, chicken, grilled meats and a variety of cheeses.
