  • "The purpose with this wine is to feature Crown Point's hillside vineyard and its synergy with Cabernet Sauvignon. The higher elevation combined with an increased rock content brought a tension into the wines that balance the heat and sunshine. The winery noticed the California clones adapt well to the Mediterranean conditions in this warm year. The clones that provide the backbone to this wine are Clone 8 - defined by its fresh fruit character, tracing back to Chateau Margaux - and To Kalon Clone 2 - infamous To Kalon vineyard selection in Napa delivering spice and concentration. Marked by its intensity, there are complex notes of cherries, blackberries, and floral tones in harmony with it's trademark savoriness. A wine that can be appreciated now or for the next 20 years."  Notes from the Winemaker

    • Wine Profile

      "Dark and concentrated in the glass, this bottling immediately reveals an elegantly refined polish. Aromas of blackberry, dark cocoa and black pepper lead into a palate that's concentrated but perfectly ripe. Flavors of black currant, vanilla, toast and a hint of mint are wrapped in complex yet smooth tannins and ample, fresh acidity."  Matt Kettmann
