Our approach to wine making focuses on procuring the best fruit possible and once you have it get the heck out of the way. The very finest wines are a rare gift from Mother Nature and can never be replicated through labs or engineering. This is not to say that crafting a 100 point Napa Cab is effortless, quite the contrary. The wine making process is a never ending quest to understand your vineyard and how best to take your harvest from the vineyard to the bottle and get the most from your fruit. Wine making is an art subject to the whims of nature not a science. And that will never change. At the end of the day people sometimes forget that the purpose of fine wine is for it to taste great - simple as that.
