Vineyard 511, LLC

Cabernet Sauvignon
Diamond Mountain District

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from two adjacent hillside vineyards in the Diamond Mountain District nested appellation
  • At an elevation of 750 feet, these vineyards produce small berries with intense color and flavor
  • Aged 30 months in 100% French oak, unfined and unfiltered, all for beautifully balanced, silky tannins
  • Best of the barrels selected showing true terrior of volcanic, ash soil of Diamond Mountain

Vineyard {511} is located in the Diamond Mountain District of Napa Valley and rises 750 ft. above the valley floor. On a west facing, steep slope, it catches the heat of the afternoon sun. Located above the fog line, its rocky, volcanic ash soil produces mountain fruit with deep-colored, small berries, intense flavor, and wines that are big, complex, and age-worthy. Our 30-month aging process in 100 percent French oak creates beautifully balanced, silky tannins. Although it stretches 5,000 acres to the Napa-Sonoma county line, the Diamond Mountain District appellation only comprises a tiny 500 acres of vineyards, making it and our wine truly unique.

Winemaker, Rob Lloyd

Rob Lloyd was raised in a family where wines were an integral part of each evening's meal. Little did he know that this proximity to wine would lead him one day into the profession of wine making. After graduating from the University of California, Irvine, with an Economics degree, Rob headed to the Napa Valley to work in the wine business. He first began his career as a Cellar Employee, moved into the tasting room at Cakebread, and next assumed the role of Tasting Room Manager at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars.

At this point, Rob decided to become a Winemaker, so his next step was to enroll in the Enology program at the University of California, Davis, where he obtained his Masters Degree in Enology in 1999. During his schooling, Rob interned at Kent Rasmussen Winery, gaining first-hand knowledge about winemaking while at Davis.

After graduating, Rob became the Enologist and then Assistant Winemaker at La Crema in Sonoma. Returning to the Napa Valley, he joined Rombauer Vineyards in 2001, as Assistant Winemaker and then as Winemaker until his resignation in mid-2008. While at Rombauer, the winery received many new accolades and awards for their wines including being named by Wine Spectator as one of the Top 100 wines in the world in 2007.
