Our flagship wine Ancestor is our Bordeaux-style reserve blend, and an homage to the Ancestor Tree, the largest Coast Live Oak on record. Carefully selected barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot were blended for this cuvée which offers aromas of berry compote and baking spices. Rich and powerful on the palate, this wine has flavors of blackberry, cassis and graphite. Pair with hearty meats such as beef, lamb and game. Drink now or cellar 15 to 20 years.

Dried blackberry and blueberry aromas gain nuance from potting soil, dark purple flowers and a hint of wood on the nose of this blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Petit Verdot and 15% Malbec. Rounded flavors of blackberry sauce and dark chocolate cling to a tannic structure that is light but apparent, with a burst of acidity cutting through the ripeness.
