Herzog's Special Reserve Clone #6 Edition is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in the rich fertile soil of Sonoma County. The soil is a composite of volcanic ash and sand and looks like chalk, and so the region is known as Chalk Hill. The wine is then aged for 21 months in two different types of new French oak barrels.
The wine boasts bold blackberry flavors, with subtle anise and herbaceous notes. Vanilla and sugar cookies stand out from the sweet fruity flavors and balance the bold structure of the wine. The long. long finish is particularly noteworthy.
