2013 Clone 8

Sold Out

The dark garnet color opens with aromas of chocolate, cassis, and vanilla.  As you taste the wine, notes of baking spices, cherry,  and old world wine characteristics shine through.  This wine finishes with soft, silky tannins.

Winemaking Style:

Starting in 2010, we experimented with the two Clones of Cabernet grown on our property.  This is our 4th year of seperating the clones starting with the picking date.  Clone 8, known as the Concannon clone, is one of the most favored Cabernet Sauvignon clones planted in the US.
