Rainin Vineyard

Cabernet Sauvignon
Diamond Mountain District

5 cases produced


  • Selected from the finest block of the Rainin Estate Vineyard in the Diamond Mountain District nested appellation
  • Precision farming produces balanced vines with low yields to ensure perfect ripening of tannin and flavor
  • Exceptionally rich, this wine gushes with a density of opulence that cascades over length
  • The Rainin Vineyard is nestled amongst the majestic pine forests and redwood groves of the Diamond Mountain District


Every decision we make, every minute detail addressed in the winemaking process, must answer to one criterion: The wine must utterly, naturally and honestly express the character of the site from which it was grown. Our meticulous winemaking methodology includes night harvesting and hand-sorting every berry; native yeast fermentation; and barrel aging sur lie to create more texture, richness and complexity. We have never been a proponent of fining or filtering. This is an absolute guarantee that the wine was made with the least intervention and with the highest quality intentions. The Rainin Vineyard, founded in 1998 by the Rainin family, is a bucolic, eight-acre site located on the rugged volcanic slopes of the Diamond Mountain District nested appellation. The vines are nestled amongst majestic pine forests and redwood groves.
