CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2020
100% estate grown grapes, harvested entirely by hand from the sun-drenched Valle de Guadalupe in Mexico. Luscious ripe plums, dark currants & bing-cherries all make for a fruit driven core with floral hints of violets, fragrant lavender and hibiscus. Notes of sweet almonds intermingled with signature mineral tones & refreshing vegetal notes. Baking spices, Mexican vanilla and rich cocoa overtones complete the nose. Well structured and balanced with elegant tannins & delicate oak on the finish. This award-winning wine is one of the true stars in our portfolio.

Frank with high intensity & complexity. Luscious ripe plums, dark currant and bing-cherries all make for a fruit driven core with floral hints of violets, fresh lavender & hibiscus.
