This is 100% varietal and, most unusually for Klipsun, finished at just 13.2% alcohol. Dusty and more concentrated than the Seven Hills vineyard Cab, it brings fruity sweetness on the palate, with sweet blueberry aromas as well. The tannins are astringent, with suggestions of earthy, licorice and iron notes.
