Our Clone 6 Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in the Rutherford Region of Napa. Located on the world renowned Rutherford Bench the vineyard benefits from warm summer days moderated by cool evening breezes from San Pablo Bay and yield grapes rich in character, with good acidity and soft tannins.
Merlot is grown on our estate vineyard surrounding the winery and our Chardonnay is grown on our estate vineyard as well as the Dillon Vineyard adjacent to the winery. The growing season is characterized by long, cool summer days influenced by the breeze and early morning fog intrusions from San Pablo Bay.
Inland, at the 2,000 foot elevation in the Sierra Foothills, Canterbury Vineyard yields Syrah grapes benefiting from the shallow soils, low yields, long daytime photoperiod, hot daytime temperatures and cool mountain evening temperatures - all influenced by the nearby New Mellones Dam.
