Overview

When the vintage conditions are on the cooler side of the ledger, the Cabernet Sauvignon planted at Hacienda Monasterio really shines. It is so compelling to the Bordeaux-trained Peter Sisseck that he makes a Gran Reserva with Tinto Fino and up to 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. These “Atlantic” vintages are becoming rarer with each passing year and of course, being Hacienda Monasterio they call it a Reserva Especial.
