For our Cabernet Sauvignon, we combine fruit from appellations as far north as El
Dorado and as far south as Paso Robles, where soil diversity produces more
complexity in our wine. Likewise, some of our vineyards experience unique daily
temperature fluctuations, where extremely hot days are tempered by very cool nights.
This slows the ripening process and enhances the flavor and complexity of the fruit.
2009 was an excellent vintage that featured only light spring rain, warm summer
weather and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. This allowed us to be highly
selective during harvest, choosing the very best fruit only when completely ripe. The
result of these amazing conditions is a richly textured, intensely fragrant Cabernet
Sauvignon with supple tannins and sophisticated notes of spice and oak.
