Inspired by the age-old method of using cuttings from idyllic sites for the propagation of new vines, this Cabernet Sauvignon showcases some of our favorite hillside vineyards. Cuttings combines the deep, intense flavor of Cabernet Sauvignon with the structure and richness of Petite Sirah and Syrah. A small amount of Zinfandel adds a nice layer of complexity and spiciness. Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon; 20% Blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Zinfandel

(2016 vintage) Such pretty floral, sweet fruited perfume – it’s a funny thing when you say sweetness because it’s often pejorative, but here so far from that, so inviting, familiar and good. The palate has a tightness, a strict rule in shape and form, long, pivoting on fruit, savouriness and brisk acidity, with a swathe of lacy tannin chiming in. Such personality and tension, structure and sinew. Seriously good.
