A selection from our finest vineyards and varieties, Michael’s Cuvee is a unique expression of the best of each vintage brought together in a new and distinctive harmony.
Perhaps more reminiscent of a classic Graves from Bordeaux than a big Napa Valley Cabernet, this elegant wine is a clear statement of the Cornerstone Cellars style, which is defined by grace and balance.
In an era where simple power is all that's offered by many Napa Valley Cabernets, the wines from Kairos are the epitome of elegance.
This rich, powerful and dramatic 100% Syrah should be paired with the biggest steaks you can find in its youth, but with age will become even more layered and complex.
Voluptuous and rich, the layered mouthfeel is well integrated with a full tannin structure and a freshness not often found in Howell Mountain Cabernet, seamlessly flowing to a long, flavorful, vibrant finish.
