Production Notes
The labels on our Winemaker Series illustrate and honor each vineyard. Fruit for our 2016 Courtney’s Cuvée came from our estate vineyards in the Alexander Valley. These vineyards lie at the valley floor, planted on predominantly clay soils. Our Clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon, comprising most of the blend, is oriented East-West and enjoys wonderful, unencumbered sunshine throughout the growing season. Our famed Tannat and elegant Cab Franc make up the final blend. Each barrel for this blend was hand selected based on aromatics, varietal intensity and balance.
