This Premiere Cuvee is a barrel selection of Cabernet Sauvignon from our finest barrels of Clone 7 and Clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon.
2010 was an important year for Revana, as it marked our 10th harvest. The 2010 Revana Premiere Cuvee shows classic Revana Cabernet flavors but turns up the richness and concentration for a strikingly complex and delicious Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a great reflection of the dedication, experience and recognition that Revana Family Vineyard has achieved over the past ten years—and a fitting wine with which to celebrate our 10th anniversary.
