(2012 Vintage) Our flagship wine, Ancestor, is our Bordeaux-style reserve blend, and an homage to the heart and soul of our property, the Ancestor Tree. This tree is one of the largest coast live oaks on record, and is nestled amongst the vines of block eleven. Carefully selected barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot were blended for this cuvée which offers complex aromas of blackberries and mocha. Elegant and rich, this wine has a silky, round mouth feel with seamlessly integrated tannins. Well-balanced, the 2012 Ancestor is an excellent food wine and pairs well with red meat, lamb and game.
