At the French port of Le Havre, Jean Leon stowed away on a ship bound for the US. He was soon discovered by a sailor who decided to keep his presence a secret. This Reserva wine is a tribute to an unspoken pact with a stranger who changed Jean Leon’s life forever. Made from Cabernet Sauvignon and small percentage of Cabernet Franc, this limited-production wine originates in an exceptional 16-hectare vineyard that shares the same name.
