Staff Pick Notes

This excellent value wine is made mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon with a little addition of Syrah and Carignan. The number 500 and the stripes on the label refer to the minimum altitude where the grapes were sourced to make this wine.The high elevation of the vineyards guarantees a bright acidity and freshness often not achieved in Cabernet Sauvignons.
