Description

Sequoia Grove has a rich history of investing time, energy and care both in farming estate vineyards and in our partnerships with growers. With our estate vineyards primarily located in the illustrious Rutherford nested appellation of the Napa Valley, we selected a special lot that combines our commitment to our historic location alongside a decades-long working relationship with the Morisoli family. Primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% of this blend is from our estate Tonella Vineyard, located on the eastern-most part of Rutherford in the shadow of the Vaca Mountains, and 49% is from the Morisoli Vineyard, located on the western side of Highway 29 in the historic Rutherford Bench. The blend is finished off with a touch of Petit Verdot from the Sequoia Grove estate winery property in Rutherford.
