Reserve Cabernet (1.5L)

Visitors to the winery often ask what “Reserve” Cabernet means to us. It’s simple. Reserve means the winemaker’s careful blend of individual wines made from time-tested, meticulously farmed sections of some of the very best vineyards in Alexander Valley. Select areas within each vineyard are hand harvested individually, fermented separately and aged in the finest French oak barrels. After about six months, each lot is tasted and graded. Only the highest graded wines that display depth, concentration and age worthiness are considered for Reserve Cabernet. The blend is then assembled and the wine is returned to barrels to facilitate flavor integration. The wine is aged an additional 12 to 18 months, depending on the vintage, before bottling.
