This is history in a glass. The vines for this vineyard were originally planted in 1886. Though there have been replantings over the years, these Cabernet vines are mostly over 65 years old. What was once labeled as the Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet has been known as the Estate Cabernet since the 2008 vintage. This is the same vineyard source used for their legendary Monte Bello bottling. The wine is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot. If you can only put a few bottles of Cabernet away every year, then this would be a strong contender. The pedigree here is unmatched.
