Our Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Beckstoffer Family's famed vineyard on the western side of Napa Valley's Oakville subappellation. This mid-valley location is far enough south that it is cooled by morning fog from San Francisco's San Pablo Bay, yet far enough north that the grapes fully ripen in the long days of sunshine. The area's sparse, volcanic soils extend from the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. These well-drained soils encourage deep roots, which develop complex flavors in the grapes. All grapes are handpicked when they taste rich and ripe.
