  • A former riverbed, Stice Lane Vineyard's gravel deposits provide ideal soils for growing

  • 100% barrel fermented to provide a textured palate and silky tannins, then basket-pressed


Recognizing the Stice Lane Vineyard as a site capable of producing Cabernet Sauvignon with classic Napa Valley character, the Rombauer family purchased the vineyard in St. Helena in the early 2000s. Resting in the warmest part of Napa Valley, Stice Lane Vineyard is characterized by its gravel deposits that provide ideal soils for growing the highest quality fruit that results in concentrated, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. This single-vineyard designate is produced from the D Block, planted in the property’s southwest corner in 1995, and is considered some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon grown in Napa Valley. The grapes were carefully destemmed and optically sorted to ensure only perfect fruit made it into the wine. The wine was 100% barrel fermented to provide a more textured palate and silky tannins. The wine was gently basket-pressed before being racked to French oak barrels for 17 months of aging.
