BROKEN ROCK VINEYARD
At Broken Rock Vineyard, we are so fortunate that the fruit here gets the best of both worlds; complex hillside structure and a rich valley floor flavor. The positioning of this stunning vineyard, provides plenty of afternoon sun for the 2,000 vines that were planted per acre. Blessed with high drainage and low fertility soil on the Eastern Ridge of Napa Valley and at the foot of Atlas Peak, Broken Rock consistently produces wines of unusual intensity and concentration. It is no surprise that wines produced from this vineyard can easily accept merit in Wine Spectator’s “Top 100” list.
LAS PIEDRAS VINEYARD
Las Piedras is known for its rich, gravely soil and traces its roots back to the orginal land grants of over 150 years. These vines help to produce a mineral driven Cabernet Sauvignon. It is characterized by long summer days with gentle breezes, from the Mayacamas Mountains from the Pacific, throughout the afternoon. This cabernet is definitely not one to miss.
