This 2010 La Cime Cabernet Sauvignon is made from a blend of the finest blocks of our mountain-top and benchland vineyards. The variety of clones (Cabernet Sauvignon 4, 6, 8, 15, 191, 337, 338, 341) and soils gives this wine a unique complexity. Classic Bordeaux varietal components of Malbec and Petit Verdot complement the fruit, structure and depth of this wine.
