Aged EXCLUSIVELY in 100% new French Oak in the LaGrange Nature (the first barrel of its kind). JCB PHI is DIVINE in its nature, born from the only barrel of its kind that is inspired by the natural world around us… a unique journey from grape to bottle where a MYSTICAL moment in time was spent in total harmony. It’s no wonder the golden ratio inspired this exclusive expression of Cabernet, as its PROPORTIONAL perfection is found in every sip.
