Virtually all wine grape types have multiple clones – variations that produce characteristics differing from the original. Certain clones may produce distinctly different wine aromas and flavors, and the best wines from a particular variety often come from smaller-berried clones. Our Herzog Cabernet Sauvignon, Chalk Hill, Clone Six is one such example, showcasing extremely small berries, loose clusters, and highly concentrated flavors. It also has an amazing history that dates back over a century.
Considered to be a winemaker’s dream, Clone Six is the pinnacle of the varietal, showcasing superior traits and highly concentrated flavors. Our Clone Six Cabernet boasts bold blackberry flavors, backed by subtle anise and herbaceous notes. Aged in two different types of brand new French oak, warm vanilla and sugar cookie nuances balance the bold structure and add a long, lush finish. The full – bodied structure of this wine will allow for cellaring for 10-15 years.
