2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
East meets West. Two amazing vineyards, one winemaker. Peacock is a six-acre hillside vineyard 1,000 feet up in the Spring Mountain District. Somerston is a 1,628-acre ranch in the eastern hills of Napa Valley with 210 acres of vineyard and elevations of 1,100 to 2,600 feet. Both wineries are contributing wine made from 25-year-old hillside Cabernet Sauvignon vines.
