The grapes for this muscled-up Cab were grown in one of the oldest vineyards in the country. The wine has old-school terroir in it—meatiness and nuts. It's a French oak recipient (18 months), with dark plummy fruit at the tannin-protected core. A soft and cuddly fruitball, it's not; but real Cabernet it is for sure.
