2013 Cabernet Sauv. Reserve

2013 Cabernet Sauv. Reserve

Sold Out

Each winter, we taste through every barrel of Cabernet Sauvignon from the vintage just concluded, and set aside those we feel represent the purest expression of our remarkable terroir. We carefully blend this handful of barrels together, then patiently age this wine for an extended period in new French oak before bottling. This becomes our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon- the very best Cabernet our estate vineyard produces each year. This 2013 bottling is an irresistible example of our classic, old world-influenced winemaking style- graceful, delicious, compelling, and ageable.
