Winemaker's Notes:

The vineyard is located between Niebaum Lane and Manley Lane 0.7 miles west of Route 29 in the heart of Rutherford Bench, which has a worldwide reputation for growing great Cabernet Sauvignon. This is the 12th year that we have produced wine from this vineyard. Its light, dusty, gravely soils produce grapes with vibrant fruit and impeccable balance. The fruit results in wines composed of equal parts power and finesse. The wines we make from this vineyard have great longevity but are also very drinkable when they are released. Each year, we produce single vineyard designated Cabernet and Zinfandel from this very special vineyard.

Drink over the next 7 to 15 years. Serve with beef, game, and ripe cheeses.
