Purchased in 1998, the Family Ranch is located in the Stags Leap District AVA of the Napa Valley. The climate is known for a longer growing season of warm days and cool nights—perfect for late-maturing varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon with a signature style from this region known for its distinctive combination of power and elegance. We have 17.58 acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. Our production facility, barrel cave and visitor center are also located here.
Each year we make a barrel selection from our Stags Leap estate vineyard which we believe defines our commitment to produce the finest expression of Cabernet Sauvignon. Our 2016 Brenda’s Vineyard has layers of dark fruits, rich oak and nuanced aromas of cigar box. The palate delivers with super concentrated and layered dark berry fruits. This is a big and powerful wine, with a long and structured finish. Cellar this wine and wait for the magic to appear!
