Roger Bower, Crown Point Vineyards proprietor, celebrates making Wine Enthusiast's top-10 list for its 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon.

Crown Point Vineyards of Santa Ynez has been recognized by Wine Enthusiast magazine as one of 10 top-rated Cabernet Sauvignon's in California. Their prized Cabernet was the only wine from Santa Barbara County to achieve the Top 10 status, according to the published list.

Roger Bower, proprietor of Crown Point Vineyards, said his winery which produces Bordeaux varietal wines from Happy Canyon, was selected by editors of Wine Enthusiast out of nearly a thousand other varietal bottles.

“It’s an honor to have our 2015 Crown Point Cabernet Sauvignon be recognized as a top-rated wine in California,” said Bower. “From early on, I knew that Crown Point was destined to be a world-class vineyard and that vision still remains. Our goal is to produce wines that will drink well now yet age gracefully for 25+ years. Our winemaking team did a remarkable job crafting this exceptional, purposeful wine.”

As the only Santa Barbara County wine to grace the esteemed list, Crown Point's wine received an impressive 97-point score, said Bower.

Matt Kettmann, editor at Wine Enthusiast remarked that he believes Crown Point is focused on setting a new benchmark for what Cabernet Sauvignon from Santa Barbara can be.
