One barrel made, from the original Kiona vines. Deeply concentrated cassis and raspberry fruit, tinged with bramble and brush, saturates the palate. This is Cabernet raw and wild, from old vines, with wonderful details of herbs and forest. A unique wine, with tart and astringent tannins, but excellent length.
