Truly memorable wines are a marriage of both the vineyard and the winery. Our vineyard crew works tirelessly and closely with our winemaker to ensure that every vine in the vineyard gets the individual attention that will allow each precious berry to ripen to perfection.
High-density planting, vine crop reduction and hand-training and careful timing of the pick come together to produce the soft tannins and overall balance of the structure, vineyard acid levels, beautiful aromatics, and an elegant mouthfeel in the resulting wine.
Each lot from our various vineyard blocks is fermented separately in small batches to ensure proper fermentation temperatures. As in the vineyard, patience in the wine caves pays off. Both red and white wines are allowed to spend generous amounts of time in barrel to mature and reach the sought-after balance.
We feel our wines accurately express the unique character of this special estate and those who work there. In the Cabernet-based wines, this approach results in the inherent power and richness of the Cabernet grape being balanced with the finesse and elegance that define its character. In the whites, all of this work is intended to capture the typical freshness and liveliness of the Sauvignon Blanc grape and balance it with concentration and depth.
