Clone 4 Meteor Vineyard

Cabernet Sauvignon
Coombsville

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • Sourced from a select few rows of Block 1 in the famed Meteor Vineyard
  • From a grower we cherish, a wine meant to honor both Napa Valley and this nearly two-decade partnership
  • This vintage expression shows the depth of the maturing vines in the vineyard
  • Floral and expressive, powerful yet elegant and graceful in character

The grapes used for this one-of-a-kind wine were sourced exclusively from the Meteor Vineyard, situated on gentle rolling hills within the Coombsville nested appellation in Napa Valley and planted in 1999 to three distinct Cabernet Sauvignon clones. The vines are strongly influenced by the cooling effects of the nearby San Pablo Bay, as well as the stony, rich volcanic ash soil, along with the elevation diversity provided by the Vaca Mountains. Meteor Vineyard is carefully looked after by owner Barry Schuler and vineyard manager Mike Wolf, which allows the vineyard to proudly be home to some of Napa Valley’s most distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. We've chosen to highlight Clone 4 in this never before, never again offering.
