Palate

Exotic, rich and full bodied with structure and balance.

Growing Conditions

A dynamic, more hedonistic Cabernet. This rare wine is made from the original and highly acclaimed Secret Clone vineyard in the hills east of Howell Mountain. It is a blend of two lots, special Secret Clone and Clone 7. Winemaker Mitch Cosentino has been using these grapes since 2000 in other very rare and highly sought after collectable wines. This is the first produced by pureCru exclusively from this vineyard. This will be one of the best wines you have had in recent years!

Winemaking

Both lots were punched cap fermented.

Aging

Barrel aged for 22 months in French oak barrels, blended just weeks before bottling.
