From David Abreu's vineyard on top of Howell mountain plus some cabernet franc from Hudson vineyard.

The Pichon Lalande/Palmer-like blend called Quartet (generally 40+% Cabernet Sauvignon 30-35% Merlot 15-24% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot) is an intriguing wine. The 2006 Quartet reveals a dark ruby color along with notes of crushed rocks spring flowers red and black fruits medium to full body and elevated austere tannins. It should be forgotten for 3-4 years and drunk over the following 15 years.
