The grapes for the 2011 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon were grown in Maroon Wines’ Hagen Road Estate, an area proving to be the perfect spot for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and creating wine that is complex, well balanced and elegant. This is partially attributed to the Coombsville AVA micro-climate. Its slightly cooler temperatures allow the grapes to hang longer than in other areas, giving them time to fully ripen before harvest.
