Everyone loves a well-crafted Cabernet Sauvignon and we are no exception. Our grapes were hand harvested from a beautiful 40 year old vineyard tucked up against a hillside in Valle de la Grulla, an hour south of Ensenada. Many friends joined us during crush to lend their muscle and good humor in the processing of these grapes. After aging 18 months in second-use French and American oak barrels we blended in a small percentage of Syrah and Grenache to highlight the rich earthiness and dark fruit that we so admire in this wine.
