Vineyard Notes

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.

Harvest:  Oct 19th to Nov 4th, 2010

Production Notes

Cooperage / Aging:  The wine was aged for 30 months in French oak barrels (25% new). 

Bottling Date:  June 13, 2013
