The AXR 2017 Reserve Cabernet shows the skill of 100-point winemaker Jean Hoelfiger, tested by a year of environmental extremes. From that struggle came one of the most exceptional vintages from AXR. This highly coveted cellar selection is an elegant mix of the V Madrone, Sleeping Lady, To Kalon, and Denali vineyards. Full-bodied and sensationally balanced, it hits all the right notes from blue fruits and blood orange to earthy aromatics of tobacco and pine.

There are 350 cases of the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Flagship, which comes from a mix of the V Madrone, Sleeping Lady, To Kalon, and Denali vineyards. A cellar selection put together by winemaker Jean Hoefliger, aged 22 months in 80% new French oak, it’s a full-bodied, balanced, elegant 2017 that does everything right, offering loads of blue fruits, tobacco, blood orange, and pine forest-laced aromatics, full-bodied richness and depth, silky tannins, and just sensational balance. It shines for its purity as well as its balance.
