This is 2,130 feet up the mountain, and on a clear day you can see the Pacific. The Wine Advocate said this wine “sings of freshly crushed red and black currants, warm plums and black raspberries with touches of cedar chest and tobacco.” Gorgeous, balanced Cabernet that will have a long life in the cellar!

Wine Advocate

Composed entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon sings of freshly crushed red and black currants, warm plums and black raspberries with touches of cedar chest and tobacco. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, it has a lively backbone cutting through the intense layers, finishing on a compelling spicy note. 98 cases produced
