Garden Creek Tesserae

100% Alexander Valley proprietary Bordeaux Blend

A complex Cabernet Sauvignon blended with components of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Aged for 7-years prior to release. Each year this wine is a hand-selected by varietal and clone from our estate vineyard. The Tesserae is our most valiant interpretation of our unique site. Powerful, poignant with restrained elegance.
