Highlights

  • Celestial Vineyard has seven different blocks, all on a steep hillside with well-drained, rocky soils
  • Celestial Block 96 is a two-acre section of the vineyard planted to Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 337
  • Our PNV wine from Block 96 has real depth that allows it be a spectacular stand-alone wine
  • 100% estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in a 100% new Sylvain French oak barrel

Somerston Estate is located high in the eastern hill of Napa Valley. Our 1,628-acre estate has 215 acres of vineyards planted, with elevations ranging from 800 to 2,400 feet. This wine is a single block Cabernet Sauvignon made exclusively with fruit from our Celestial Vineyard. At 1,800 feet elevation, the hot days and cool nights result in fruit that is nurtured in a subtle way, allowing us to create a balanced wine that is well structured and age worthy.
