Grand Valley AVA

Grown on a mesa-topped vineyard with a unique terroir, our grapes were carefully selected during the hand harvest to achieve the richness and balance associated with our Cabernet Sauvignon. We farm the vineyard with an objective of limiting production to 2 to 3 tons per acre in order to produce grapes of unusual concentration, purity of flavor and vibrancy.

Typically luscious with an elegant tannin structure our Cabernet
Sauvignon is full-bodied and ready to drink now, yet promising great aging potential. Tones of ripe cherries, sweet raspberries and earth lead into a wine packed with rich caramel and tobacco nuances.This wine is superbly balanced, refined and long on the finish.
