2012 HUGHES CABERNET SAUVIGNON 1.5L
<< Back to Shop
This wine defines our passion for mountain grown Cabernet Sauvignon. At 1,500 feet elevation, at the end of a long and winding road, Loyal Hughes' picturesque vineyard comprises a series of steep hillsides and mixed sedimentary and volcanic soils. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines that cling to its slopes produce small clusters of deeply concentrated grapes that lead to statuesque wines with immense aging potential.
