Cabernet Sauvignon Pairings VR Cab Onions
- 1 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
- 6 Large red onions (julienned thin)
- 8 oz Dark brown sugar
- ½ Bottle Vina Robles Cabernet Sauvignon
- 16 oz Balsamic vinaigrette
- 3 Large rosemary sprigs
Heat oil in a wide-based heavy skillet over high heat. Add onions and sauté for about 5 minutes, stirring often. Reduce heat to medium and cook until soft and lightly browned, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until onions form a dark red wine caramel color, 20-30 minutes. Remove from heat and discard rosemary sprigs.
Great on burgers (click here for Vina Robles Burger recipe), crusty bread, or even pizza, VR Cab Onions can be kept chilled in a sealed container for up to 3 weeks.
2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
The fruit for our 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon was selected from two of our estate vineyards in Paso Robles – Huerhuero and Creston Valley. Huerhuero Vineyard, in the hilly terrain between the El Pomar and Geneseo Districts, benefits from the moderating Pacific breezes that blow through the Templeton Gap in the afternoon as well as its limiting calcareous subsoils. Creston Valley Vineyard has picture perfect high terrain, southern exposure and shallow soils with noticeable granulated limestone. Both of these vineyards produce Cabernet Sauvignon with an overall balance of expressive flavors and structure.
