Winemaker's Notes

Small. Dense. Concentrated. Our vineyard isn't the largest or highest yielding in the Napa Valley. But it is well loved. Because we know that all great wines start in the vineyard, our winemaker pays close attention to our vines. By managing this vineyard ourselves, we are able to control yields and farm for flavor.

The Syrah from our vineyard provides the backbone of the blend with deep black fruits and tannin structure, while the other block, grown in a cooler site, contributes boosted pepper and berry notes.
