TIERRA BUENA VINEYARD, SPRING MOUNTAIN DISTRICT, NAPA VALLEY
We sourced the fruit for the “Tierra Buena” Cabernet from a historic vineyard on Spring Mountain, first planted in the 1880s. This is the “good earth” at its finest. Grown mostly at 1,100 feet, this sun-drenched hillside above the fog line is the perfect home for fruit that develops supreme concentration and exquisite tannins. Bold, structured like the proverbial brick shelter, this oozes class and blackcurrant fruit to spare.

OAKVILLE VINEYARD, OAKVILLE APPELLATION, NAPA VALLEY
Hillside Oakville fruit is responsible for some of the most iconic wines of Napa: Phelps Backus and Screaming Eagle are two legends from the same neighborhood as our Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, expertly farmed to organic standards by Phil Coturri. This is the most lush and opulent of the trio, brimming with juicy cassis liqueur and boysenberries. Brilliant!

SOMERSTON VINEYARD, NAPA VALLEY
Somerston Estate is a beautiful valley unto itself on Sage Canyon road, between Lake Hennessey and Lake Berryessa, northeast of Rutherford and Pritchard Hill. Our “Somerston” Cabernet Sauvignon is gently structured, with dusty, pleasantly earthy aromas overlaying deep blackberry and black cherry fruit. In 2013 this wine absolutely shines, and will age 15-20 years.
