1998 Taken From Granite “Elégance”, red blend


Minimum order required: 6 bottles, mix and match. 




A limited production, “Reserve” level wine (only 420 cases made), using grapes from top-tier vineyard sites exclusively, and then selecting only the best barrels for the blend, in order to achieve the most elegant, refined expression of the Renaissance’s vineyard rugged terroir.

Blend: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Sangiovese and 4% Malbec.

This is an a-typical Cabernet-based wine for California, being distinctly terroir-driven, with no makeup or embellishment whatsoever.    

Minimum order 6 bottles, mix and match. 

Note: This wine has been stored in the winery cellar since its inception. That is a dry cellar, and some corks may be brittle and crumbly. Use caution when uncorking, preferably using an ah-so type opener or, even better, a “Durant”  .
