Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Our estate vineyard is situated at the east end of Pratt Avenue in the Saint Helena appellation of Napa Valley along the Napa River. Our Consulting Winemaker, Aaron Pott, purchased fruit from our estate in the early 2000s for another notable Napa Valley winery, and now he works intimately with our vineyards to create distinctive Cabernet Sauvignons reflecting our terrior.
Our soil type is Bale Loam with three variations. The "Estate Cabernet Sauvignon" is grown on the north parcel where the loam ratio has a finer rock composition. Vines are cane pruned and hand-tended to yield two clusters per shoot. The parcel yields approximately two tons per acre. The Cabernet Sauvignon clone planted here is See, and yields a wine with opulent flavors and elegant structure.
Our vineyard is managed by Elizabeth Tangney and our estate crew, with consulting from winemaker Aaron Pott.
