Sourced from high on the steep, terraced lopes of our Oakville Bench estate vineyard
A single vineyard block of Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 7 was hand picked and sorted to create this wine
Fermented in French oak puncheons resting on their heads; punch downs were by hand
Drained and pressed to gracefully age in the same puncheons in which fermentation occurred
Single vineyard wine
Wine is 100% estate grown and bottled
very full bodied
