Highlights

  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, handpicked Clones 8, 15 and 337 from our top vineyard microsites
  • Classic rich profile, beautifully concentrated black and red fruit, spice notes and refined tannins
  • Handcrafted and aging in 100% new French oak, paired to each clone’s profile
  • Showcases well-drained, intense terroir of Napa Valley’s largest alluvial fan found on our estate

Our estate vineyard is located on a unique parcel in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. The vineyard borders Dry Creek at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains and is located in the largest of 10 alluvial fan belts in Napa Valley. The well-drained sandy and gravelly loam soils, in partnership with moderate temperatures, yield concentrated fruit with excellent flavor intensity, yet a supple mouth-feel. The vineyard is planted to three different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon. Each of the four vineyard blocks was hand-harvested at dawn and carefully sorted by eight sets of hands. The wine is aged for 24 months in an assortment of French oak barrels that are chosen to complement the subtle nuances of the vineyard. The selection of these barrels further enhances the length, depth and complexity of the Cabernet Sauvignon and reveals a well-integrated wine that is made to last.
