Highlights

  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, crafted from the Atchley Family Vineyard, contiguous to our estate
  • Sustainably farmed, handcrafted and aged in 100% new French oak for 24 to 26 months
  • Named Collaboration to highlight the relationship with our neighbors, the Atchley family
  • A blend of two different clone selections: Clones 7 and 8

This special 2013 blend of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the Atchley Family Vineyard. Situated at 2000ft elevation, contiguous to our property, the wine was crafted from the main vineyard block, planted to a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon 'Clone 7' and 'Clone 8'! We have had the honor of leasing and farming this 5-acre vineyard since 2007 and it is truly an extension of our Estate. Family and friends such as the Atchleys are the backbone of our business, and we are very proud to share this special cuvée with you.
