Napa Valley

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • Your wine is an exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon from Geodesy’s preeminent estate, Sage Ridge Vineyard
  • Small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot were added to the blend to build density and structure
  • Sustainably farmed from sedimentary soils atop of metamorphic rock
  • Geodesy profits fund the WG Edge Program to help advance young women from our farming community

Considered the crown jewel among Geodesy's estates, Sage Ridge Vineyard sits at 1,500 feet of elevation overlooking Pritchard Hill and Lake Hennessey. The 2019 vintage yielded Cabernet Sauvignon lots with exceptional finesse, tension and supple tannin, qualities that are accentuated in this blend of clones 337 and 7. Being a true icon estate and planted to all 5 Bordeaux varieties, small percentages of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot were blended to build the density, structure and richness that makes Napa Valley wines famous. Geodesy was founded in gratitude to our agricultural community with the sole purpose of empowering the next generation of young women. Profits support the WG Edge program that advances bright young women through connectivity with a multi-generational village of teachers, mentors, and internship sponsors who guide, support, and empower them. Drink well. Do good.


Megan Baccitich

Winemaker, Geodesy

Winemaker, Megan Baccitich

A Healdsburg native, Megan Baccitich embraces the mentality of winegrowing-as-farming to create stunning expressions of terroir. As the winemaker for Geodesy, this is the perfect fit since she works closely with the vineyard team to ensure that each grape (well, maybe each cluster and row) is absolutely perfect for the final wine blend.

Megan’s pedigree includes multiple 100-point scores. A 2001 graduate of California State University at Fresno, Megan began her career at a custom crush facility giving her invaluable insight into production methodology across different wineries, appellations, and varietals. Her next assignment was with Paul Hobbs where she served as Director of Winemaking for a decade.

As one of Paul’s protégées, she honed her winemaking approach and crafted many highly sought-after wines that were favorites with critics and customers alike. As a mentor, Paul provided Megan with a culture of incremental improvement where discipline, rigor and keen attention to details were of the upmost importance. The corollary to this is Megan’s strong desire to be creative and her acute awareness that wine quality is the driver to every decision. Since 2016, she has been a consulting winemaker to several prestigious ventures and we’re pleased that Megan’s part of our journey.

As a youngster, Megan often visited her grandparents’ ranch in Dry Creek Valley, roaming the old, terraced Albariño vineyard, maintaining the orchard and gardening. Ever curious about science and nature, she cultivates a respect for the land and sustainable farming. Megan lives in Sonoma County with her life-partner, Ben, and their doggie-kid Rio.
