Vineyard Notes

The fruit for our 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from selected blocks on our 56-acre Estate West vineyard located on a contiguous piece of property just across Chalk Hill Road. This warm, protected site features rocky, porous volcanic soils that are ideal for red Bordeaux varieties. 2017 began with heavy rains in winter which reinvigorated the vineyards going into bud break. The region had sunny days throughout the spring and summer, and a heat spike in August which propelled the harvest schedule.
