Six vintages of CYRUS packed in wood collectors box!
In 1995 founder Hank Wetzel created a wine that was a tribute to Cyrus Alexander and the very special place that AVV calls home; a wine that is now known as the First Growth of Sonoma.
Today winemaker Kevin Hall carries on the tradition selecting our most distinctive lots of estate Bordeaux grapes for CYRUS: Cabernet Sauvignon with exceptional concentration, purity & lush texture; Cabernet Franc with finesse & depth; Merlot for concentration & structure; Petit Verdot for vivid color & richness and Malbec for deep color & depth.
The case includes 1 bottle each of six different vintages of CYRUS packed in a wood collectors case. You can compare and contrast the six vintages with this highly allocated case.
