Nose

Spicy black currant with oak notes in the nose.

Palate

Bright and balanced in the mouth. Pomegranate, currants, and berries provides an exotic pure fruit center with a touch of pepper framed by the oak. Clean and crisp it's finished with a youthful tartness.

Growing Conditions

A dynamic more hedonistic Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is made from the mysterious Secret Clone from its original Pope Valley vineyard. A very rare and highly appreciated clone since its debut in its first vintage of 2000. This is only the third vintage of this unique wine under PureCru Winery and its original winemaker Mitch Cosentino (who has made and bottled 11 total vintages to date under different wineries).

Winemaking

Each lot was punched cap fermented by hand.

Aging

Barrel aged for 40 months in selected French Oak barrels (67% new).
