Our first Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was released in 2010 and immediately garnered critical acclaim. Produced from some of the best vineyards in Oakville, Rutherford, and St. Helena, this Cabernet is small in production (less than 3,000 cases) and spends at least 18 months in French Oak Barrels. The Blend is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, but always has a generous amount of either Napa Valley Merlot and or Cabernet Franc depending on the needs of the vintage. The wine has incredible depth and complexity, delicious black fruits and amazing opulence. What also makes this wine truly unique and exceptional is our use of a very special winemaking technique called Flash Détente on a portion of the fruit, which we then barrel ferment. Hypothesis is a muscular wine that loves to be paired with food, but is sophisticated enough to stand on its own.
