Made from our best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, this special reserve wine is named for Kix Brooks, the fourteenth bottling of this series, made from the 2020 vintage. Dense, rich, and age-worthy, this full-bodied Cabernet is Kix’s favorite! We source these grapes from the Red Mountain AVA – and they are always the most small, tannic, and intense berries of all the grapes we buy. This wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 22 months. This wine will age well for 10 years but will probably taste best before 2027.
Pair this wine with steak, game, hearty beef dishes, lamb, BBQ brisket, Cheddar, Manchego, and Gouda.
