Classic Cabernet notes of red plum, red currant, cassis and hint of tobacco leaf lift from the glass. Undertones of French oak, vanilla and dried sage add the complexity of the aromatics. On the palate, plush red cherry is rounded out with strong acidity and an old-world style tannin profile.
Planted in 1996 on steep hillsides and a rolling valley at the confluence of sun, wind and sea. The vineyard weathers 40◦ diurnal shifts. The extremity of the climate creates fruit of uncommon concentration and uniform ripeness.
