Key Selling Points
Estate grown, bottled and produced in Spring Mountain AVA at 2000ft. Fruit forward and stylistically different from valley floor cabs. 100% sustainable farming and solar powered.
A long mild spring and summer gave the grapes plenty of time to soak in the sun and develop intense flavors and tannins typical of great mountain Cabernet.
