Sourced from two distinct vineyard properties:
BROKEN ROCK VINEYARD
Broken Rock Vineyard grapes contain 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.
BECKSTOFFER LAS PIEDRAS VINEYARD
Beckstoffer 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.
