A majority of estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon is joined by Merlot and smaller amounts of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. They make for a balanced, herbal wine, dressed in peppercorn, black currant and blackberry adornments. Elegant in dry tannins and a hint of cedar, it can withstand time in the cellar; hold through 2026.
