Blending our finest blocks of mountaintop and benchland vineyards we are able to create this La Cime (French for "the peak") with rich structure and elegant layers of flavor.
The Vineyard: This La Cime Cabernet Sauvignon is made from a blend of the finest blocks of our mountain-top and benchland vineyards. The wide range of clones and soils gives this wine a unique complexity. Components of our estate-grown Merlot, Cab Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec complement the flavor and add extra layers of structure and depth.
