Vineyard Notes

Our 134-acre estate lies in the heart of the Stags Leap District, the first viticultural area in the United States to be approved based on the distinctiveness of its soils. Elevage is crafted from grapes across our 28 distinctive vineyard blocks planted to [five] different red varieties for a proprietary blend that captures the essence of the silky tannins of our estate.

Production Notes

The 2007 vintage brought us extraordinary fruit in the Stags Leap District. A dry spring and a warm year in comparison to the previous two vintages greatly reduced the berry size on our property. The result was a harvest which produced wines of great concentration and depth, power and elegance.
