This PLATINUM COLLECTION Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the depth of flavor that our estate vineyards can produce.
Ten barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon were selected from our best areas of our bench land and mountaintop blocks for optimum flavor expression. A small amount of our hillside Petit Verdot adds elegant highlights and complexity to this wine.
