Working with an estate vineyard requires an intimate understanding of the land. With each harvest, our knowledge of the Meteor Vineyard has grown exponentially, putting us in tune with the vineyard’s unique potential. Located on a knoll in Napa Valley’s Coombsville region, Meteor Vineyard’s special combination of elevation, aspect and stony, rich volcanic soil produces some of Napa Valley’s most distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon. For this special Premiere Napa Valley lot we have added a small percentage of our first harvest of Petit Verdot to our “heritage” Clone 7 Cabernet Sauvignon planted on Saint George rootstock. The Petit Verdot, the last block planted in the vineyard, adds a compelling dimension to Meteor Vineyard, simultaneously heightening and melding with the velvety richness of Clone 7. A unique expression from a unique corner of Napa Valley.

Winemaker, Dawnine Dyer

My first winery job in Napa Valley was with Robert Mondavi Winery in the harvest of 1974. I spent 25 years as winemaker for Domaine Chandon, opening the winery in 1977 with the first French Champagne house to own property in the Napa Valley. I first made Cabernet with my husband Bill in 1996 from their Diamond Mountain Vineyard and took to it like water. I love discovering great vineyards and came to Meteor in 2005.

Country born: United States

Education: BS in Biology from UC Santa Cruz. My mentors/winemaking heros include Zelma Long & Edmond Maudiere

Years in the wine industry: 30+ years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Focus on the vineyard, exercise restraint in the winery. I’m looking for purity, elegance and sense of place in wines.
