Winemaker's Notes:

Produced from mountain vineyards situated high above the Alexander Valley, the vines are dry farmed in shallow, rocky, low-vigor soil, which adds impressive depth and concentration of flavor intensity. Aged in French and American oak barrels, this Cabernet Sauvignon hints of toasted toffee accompanied by black fruit and deep berry flavors of jammy cassis, with a touch of vanilla for a polished finish.
