Cabernet Sauvignon - Featured
Powerful notes of blackberry, black currant, and our Rutherford "dust" to make a great first impression. It’s a powerful wine with generous, but velvety smooth tannins, and a pleasantly long finish.

Bold aromas are complemented by a refined minerality. It is well-structured and focused with silky tannins. Endless layers evolve on the palate as the wine opens leading to an elegant, lingering finish.
