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

In 2009, we were blessed with another dry spring, and beautiful temperate weather throughout the growing season. The few late rains had little effect on our intensely flavored and elaborately ripe, yet balanced, fruit.
