Tasting Notes

The fruit, both in the aroma and on the palate, is all dark and jammy supported by layers of dark cacao, baking spice and licorice.

From our Winery Ranch Vineyard

Located in the heart of the world re-owned Stags Leap District is our Winery Ranch. We purchased this property in 1998 and we've never looked back! We have twelve unique vineyard blocks with various Cabernet Sauvignon clone and root stock combinations to match our diverse soils. In 2019, our two most diverse blocks we re-contoured to enhance the native terrior. Block 1 was deep ripped and more than 100 tons of volcanic material were incorporated from the tailings of our new production cave. This material will add drainage and a mineral profile to the soil which will bring complexity to our wines. Block 7 was re-terraced and has been planted in a traditional 1 x 1 meter configuration to take advantage of the south eastern exposure. These vines will be head-trained harking back to one of the oldest cultivation systems used for wine grapes. Our winery is also located here and we welcome guests to join us for a sip and a story.
