Karren is the scientific name for the crystalline karst rock formation that was carved and sculpted over the centuries by water and wind activity. Karren is made from a careful selection of Cabernet Sauvignon. Refinement and unmistakable complexity, typical of Cabernet Sauvignon, thanks to an average ageing of 12 months in French oak barrels.
