La Mano Derecha 2013 Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon
ABOUT THE WINE
We've long loved the rich and ripe suppleness that Cruz de Piedra offers to Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. This vineyard combined with fruit from Agrelo really makes this a stand out farmed organically.

Ripe plums, chocolate, honey, and faint nutmeg make this a very interesting Cabernet. Medium to full-bodied palate has juicy fruit, fine-grained tannins and balsamic flavors in a finish mixing smoky notes and a fresh herbal touch.
