Cabernet Sauvignon
Critic's Rating 90 pts

Made with the best grapes from 30-year-old vines, aged 22 months in French oak barrels and then bottled unfiltered, this full-bodied red wine is an excellent example of the great wines we do here.

This wine has layers of spice with dark fruit and a hint of dark chocolate. Aerate before drinking to bring it to its full potential, or save it for a special occasion in the next decade.

Pair it with grilled top sirloin steak, medium rare, no exceptions.
