Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4%
Petit Verdot, sourced from a number of sites,
including Somerston, DeSantis, Lamoreaux and
Because of the limited supply and high demand, all orders are subject to confirmation. We very much expect this to sell out before release and strongly encourage you to grab it while you can.
