We have been dreaming of and contemplating how we would produce our reserve cabernet sauvignon for years.
Through trial and error, educated guesses, and hypotheses we discovered that barrel fermentation and flash détente were
the keys to uncovering what we had long been searching for. Our goal is to produce a wine with incredible structure,
depth of fruit, and complete oak integration, without being overdone. This cabernet sauvignon is rich and complex, but still
has incredible finesse. We believe our reserve cabernet can go up against some of the big boys in the game, but don’t
take our word for it and decide for yourself! Drink. Think. Hypothesis!
