Harvest 2015 was one of our earliest years on record. The persistent California drought and a cool spring during bloom led to low yields in the vineyard and an early bud break. Careful irrigation and canopy management were key and allowed our growers to maximize quality and create beautifully ripe and balanced fruit. The wines resulting from the 2015 vintage are some of our favorite to date.
The grapes used to produce this wine are from the best appellations in Napa Valley, including fruit from our two Rutherford Estate Vineyards, as well as several other long term contracted vineyards (36% Estate, 57% overall from Rutherford appellation). A more complete list of our growers includes: Sequoia Grove Estate Vineyard, Tonella Estate Vineyard, Stagecoach Vineyard, Morisoli Vineyard, Lamoreaux Vineyard, Henry Brothers Vineyard, Johnson Vineyard, Frediani Vineyard, Healy vineyard, and Christian vineyard.

We believe that wine is best enjoyed with food, family and friends. Enjoy this featured recipe but don’t hesitate to try it with any of our wines. We believe that slight adjustments to your food – typically a squeeze of lemon and dash of salt, will help any dish accent the wine. Want to learn more?
