Production Notes

February saw abundant rains, with filtered light in spring and early summer. Bud break occurred late, but under ideal weather conditions, creating a plentiful, even fruit set. Summer brought generous sun and cooler marine influences, uninterrupted by major heat spikes. Extended fall sunshine and moderate heat allowed fruit to accumulate flavor complexity with gradual increases in sugar levels.

Vineyard Notes

100% Mt. George Vineyard. Located east of Napa, our Mt George Vineyard is the site of one of the first grape plantings in the valley in the 19th century. The deep soils derived from volcanic shale and tufa yield Malbec with intense dark fruit aromas and juicy, plush wine. The wine finishes with classic broad and rustic tannins.
