Exceptional quality wines of time and place
We focus on small production expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from our four acclaimed estate vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley. Our wines are of exceptional quality and always speak to time and place.
Call us geeky. Obsessed. We believe in the time-honored tradition of making wine as it should be: honest and true, of place, and without compromise (or a lot of fuss).
Each vintage we follow that endless pursuit to achieve the very best quality. This means putting the resources in the right place. We have a dedicated team in the cellar and vineyard year round who have an infinitely valuable level of knowledge and experience. We believe having a well-equipped cellar onsite not only keeps our process transparent, but also helps us make better wine. We conduct cooperage trials when needed to find the best barrels suited to our wines. We maintain our own bottling line so we can bottle at just the right time, when the wine is ready. We don’t cut corners. Decisions are driven foremost to support the quality and integrity in our farming and winemaking.
It starts with great fruit from the very best sites
We have a careful hand in all aspects of the making process, starting with the dirt. Our estate-grown fruit is carefully tended to from the ground up by our longstanding and dedicated vineyard team, guided by our winemaker. It takes an unwavering patience to understand the relationship between the site and the grapevines growing there. Our team works symbiotically to fine tune practices in the vineyard with the same dedication and detail we employ in the cellar.
Equal parts expertise, intuition and obsession
The heart of our winemaking is a painstaking process of sorting our estate fruit lot by lot; tasting and evaluating each for specific attributes and characteristics. We select barrels specifically to highlight the fruit, relying on our trials to outfit our cellar with barrels that respect the wine that goes into them. Like a complex puzzle, we weave together a narrative of place. Lots are assigned one by one to final blends to showcase the personality of our flagship and single vineyard wines. Our wines age in 100% French Oak barrels and are then bottled for an extended period before release.
Our passion projects
We’ve become well-versed in the unique attributes of each vineyard site, and how we can best express them. Our distinctive portfolio of wines shows our range of interests and offerings.
