Cabernet Sauvignon was among the first varietals planted on Mont Rochelle, making the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard blocks some of the oldest on the farm. These older vines yield low volumes of highly concentrated fruit for the production of our elegant and complex Cabernet Sauvignon wines. The wine-style is geared towards finesse and elegance, although this wine can be powerful at times with good fruit intensity.
