Growing Conditions

The Reserve is our flagship wine. Always in very limited quantities and produced from just a few rows of our most direct southwest exposed block, the Reserve is almost all Cabernet Sauvignon (clone 4). Some vintages have added a minute amount of Petit Verdot – and are barreled in 100% new French oak (Taransaud) for 20+ months. Due to its intensity, we delay the release of the Reserve until it becomes a bit more approachable, even with a healthy decant!
