Sourced from vineyards in the northern part of California’s Central Valley which enjoys significant influence from San Joaquin and Sacramento river deltas, acting as a natural cooling system to the often-searing heat. The effect provides freshness to the ripe, fruit charged Cabernet grapes. Individual Cabernet blocks are vinified separately and then blended and aged for 6 months in oak.
